I did hike the west folk oak creek trail on Thanks giving, and it was very good. Well managed, quiet, clean, and beautiful. I think the best time to visit the canyon would be Spring when it's nice and green or Winter when everything is white. In summer, it would be nice of course, but very crowded. Highly recommend you...

Hiked this trail along 89a, 2 miles north of the Slide Rock State Park, with family and enjoyed the scenery and crossing over the oak creek several times (bring a hiking stick with you). Stopped by to view a few historical spots along the way which made is a little more interesting.

Lots of beautiful scenery. We drove through the area and took pictures many times before we left Sedona.

Oak Creek Canyon provides a scenic drive on a quaint winding road that has been somewhat modernzed in recent years. It takes one from an elevation of about 4000' at Sedona, AZ to about 6500' near Flagstaff. Native Indian jewelry is offered at one of the vistas. Just enjoy the slow paced ride.

I had no idea that we would have such a beautiful ride to Sedona from the Grand Canyon. The rock formations were fantastic.

Norman Rockwell painting of Americans on their best vacation behavior. Slide Rock is fun for the whole family. Plan to slip and slide and get wet. It's perfect for a day's outing on the way from Sedona to Flagstaff.

But if you live in Arizona, this must seem very lush and green to you. Slide Rock State Park is in this Canyon, and that is a fun place to play on a hot day.

It's an exciting ride to the bottom of the canyon and a little bit scary doing it in reverse at night. So glad we took this route.
