1. Hangover Trail, Sedona
Sedona is an absolutely beautiful place for hiking and mountain biking, but this trail should only be attempted by experienced riders who are willing to take on some risk. There are lots of mountain biking trails in the Sedona area, but the Hangover Trail is definitely one of the more unique ones. That’s because you’ll ride up to a saddle between two sections of red rock, ride along the narrow edge of a canyon, and travel on a steep cliff that’s a couple feet above the canyon floor. Although the singletrack trail is only about 3.2 miles long, it is very intense. Most of this trail is on slick rock, but it’s the exposed rock on the edge of a cliff that really requires you to be comfortable on a bike…and with heights!
