Soldier Pass Secret Trails – Sedona, AZ

Soldier Pass Secret Trail

Soldier Pass Secret Trail

A fun kind of exploration ride on awesome singletrack. There are various landmarks to see on this ride. Devil’s sink is a huge sink hole in the middle of the trail. Watch out, because the trail rides right up to it and if you don’t stop you are a gonner. Also, the seven sacred pools are fun to ride around. The area is beautiful with the Sedona red rocks all around you. the ride is short but sweet. We usually ride this and Submarine rock on the same day, becasue they are both pretty short rides. Any type of rider can enjoy these trails.

From Phoenix take I-17 north to highway 179. Once you reach the “Y” in the road, turn left onto highway 89A. 1.2 miles to Soldier Pass Road and turn right. 1.4 miles to rim shadows and turn right. Parking will be on your left aboout .2 mile up the road. Head north out of the parking lot on the jeep road until you run into singletrack on you right. rip the singletrack to the sink hole and beyond. The secret trails criss cross all over, so it is easy to get lost. It’s not hard to find your way out, because there are streets surrounding the area.

    This is a tough trail. The trail is not very well marked and there are a lot of trails criss-crossing Soldiers Pass trail. The trails are more hiking trails with VERY steep accents and decents. I got off my bike many times for the steepness of both. There are some fun jeep trails, just watch out for the Pink Jeeps! Sacred Pools are a disapointment, Devil’s Sink was very cool. Be sure to get a “Red Rock Pass” before you try and park. Scarce parking also.
