It had rained and the river was quite high. Since the trail crosses the river and there are no bridges we had to balance on rocks to cross. It was February so there were no leaves on the trees but it was still beautiful and so quiet. The trail took us right up to the base of the cliffs. It... More

Oak Cree Canyon is beautiful. It doesn't have a lot of parking spaces but you can get there also by the hiking trails.

Oak Creek Canyon causes you to exhale. The beauty of Oak Creek Canyon must be seen to believe. Photograghs can't quite capture the vistas, colors, and majesty of this vast region. Hiking just puts you in a place where the serenity takes over and puts you out-of-bounds. Truly, if you're in this region of the U.S., Sedona and Oak Creek... More

We hiked on the Oak Creek Trail on a Saturday morning in mid February; arrived 9am and didn't see another person until 9:30am. Gorgeous setting; trail winds back/forth across the Oak Creek (BRING YOUR HIKING POLES TO TRAVERSE THE CREEK) and gets right up to the spectacular rock formations. There were a few photographers setting up tripods in the morning... More

This is a relatively easy trail unless you have knee problems. Beautiful scenery and a vortex midway through. Go early as parking is quite full most of the time and you may need to wait. Great adventure!

I'm probably in the minority in not being blown away by this drive. I live in Vancouver Canada where mountain and forest scenic drives are the norm. So I acknowledge that I'm spoiled. This was a very pretty drive but if you live in a mountainous region it pales in comparison with what you've probably already seen. I was much... More

Definitely take the drive through Oak Canyon--beautiful scenery and photo ops. It's very peaceful and calming to see God's creation. There is a great little grill along the way whack had great food!
