Submarine Loop Trail is one of the most popular singletrack rides in the Sedona area and for good reason!
Featuring a mix of hard packed singletrack and slickrock riding, the Submarine Loop Trail offers technical descents, good climbs, and amazing scenery. The Submarine Loop Trail features technical slickrock and some of the best vistas of the rock monuments of the Sedona area.
There are a variety of natural formation attractions along the Submarine Loop that riders can enjoy. A view of the Devils Kitchen Sinkhole, a natural sinkhole formation that formed over 100 years ago in a collapse, is worth a short side trip. The Stairs on a spur trail from the Broken Arrow section of the loop are impressive and look like a natural staircase. On a short side spur from the trail, Submarine Rock itself is a large massif of slickrock sure to impress even the most experienced rider.
