Tours & Lessons

While Sedona is relatively easy to get around thanks to the glut of trailheads and proximity of trails to towns, the lattice of singletrack and constancy of intersections can also be bewildering for newcomers to negotiate. The highly variable nature of the riding—from smooth and buffed out hero dirt one minute to square-edge drops and loose boulders the next—adds to the demands. Whether you want to make sure to see the optimal trails for your ability on a short visit or you’re hoping to up your game with some instruction, we’ve got you covered.

Hermosa Tours

Guiding in Sedona for nearly 13 years, the start of the Sedona mountain biking renaissance, Hermosa knows local riding better than anyone!

Whether you’re a first-time visitor looking to get your bearings or a lifetime shredder in search of the Verde Valley motherlode, Hermosa can customize half- and full-day tours to suit your needs. All tours are private, which ensures you’ll ride what you want.

And if you need a rental bike (from hard-working and affordable to absolutely sick!) or a curbside pickup and drop-off, we’ve got you covered.
