Beautiful creek, lush trees. I was disappointed about the amount of trash people had left behind no matter where we stopped there was trash. Bring a trash bag when you come, I was saddened that I didn't have one so I could take some of the trash out of this otherwise beautiful place. Oh and the creek has loads of... More

Very nice area and the west fork is really a great trail to walk. 13 crossings of the river and great scenery.

this is a beutiful drive through the canyon and up the switch backs, there are a lot of places to stop on the way, if you are looking forauthentic native american jewlery and other things then you must stop at the dairy queen because they are all set up there.

My favorite drive to take. This never fails as a "Spirit fill up" for me. If I don't have a lot of time & need a surge of nature driven energy.....this is what I do. You can stop @ so many different scenic or fun places on the route. Depending on your time, this is a great drive if you... More

Very nice area for camping and hiking. Close to town and yet you feel removed from it. Interesting history in the area.

If you are looking for place rarely visited and you want to get your heart rate up, then Thomas Point is for you. Park in the West Fork parking lot on Hwy. 89A. Begin the hike on the path from the parking lot. Follow the sign past the two picnic tables until it leads you to the road. You'll see... More

Stunning. Not for faint of heart. Look for Native American stands selling jewelry. I bought some beautiful purple turquois earrings. Bring cash.

This place is peaceful and the West Fork Trail hike is perfect. However, the park gets flooded with people on the weekend and the trails are packed with hikers. If possible, avoid this place on the weekend or hike it very early or near dusk. Flash flooding occurs and if you hear a siren, get to high ground ASAP. I... More

It is amazing that this very deep canyon could be here in Arizona. I have lived here, in Yuma, for a number of years and never knew these mountains and canyons existed in this wonderful state. It really isn't just a "ugly, brown, flat, hot state."

We drove SR89A from Flagstaff to Sedona. I was told it would be a nice drive, but I didn't expect the beautiful scenery as we drove through Oak Creek Canyon. The sandstone cliff were spectacular with each curve in the road delivery another great view. There a multiple places to pull off the road for pictures and it is certainly... More
