Beautiful trail in the Oak Creek Canyon. Water along parts of the trail. Old apple orchard and homestead in the beginning of the trail. Really nice hike, do carry a long sleeve, just in case...and water. Picnic tables and bathrooms located at the parking lot. Garlands in the Canyon can be a neat place to stop and pick up some...

If you only do one hike in Sedona, do this one. Get there as early as you can as the parking lot fills up fast, and it is the best time to hike early.

An easy hike that takes you through forested land at the bottom of many large rock formations through a creek. You can easily cross the small, shallow creek by walking over large flat rocks. Very little challenge involved. Shows the great geographic diversity of the Sedona area as it is cooler (temp-wise) than Bell Rock or any of the other... More

Bring an extra pair of socks if you are clumsy! You do cross the creek many times but it is doable. Held daughters hand a few times! Lovely scenery. We went in 45 minutes and returned. Wish we would have had more time.

This trail is abt 9 miles north of Sedona on 89A. Entrance on the left. Get there early (before 9:30) on a weekend to have no waiting for a place to park. $10 to park - National Senior Pass doesn't work here. Much of the trail is shaded - so dress in layers. Wear good sneakers as there are many... More

We went at 8:30am and only met a few folks on our way in, but saw tons of people coming in on our hike back to the parking lot. You will like this trail if you want to see tall cliffs from below and lik creeks and steams.

My 15 yr old daughter and I hiked about a mile and a half in and back on the day after a light snow blanketed the trees. It was the most gorgeous hike I've ever been on.

Fantastic hike through the canyon along a tributary of Oak Creek. Sheer walls and cliffs surround you the entire trip (6 miles rt if you go to the end of the maintained trail). Hike is relatively flat so it is very enjoyable. You go through lots of different temperature zones depending on how much sun that part of the canyon... More

We absolutely loved this hike! Very easy, relaxed, beautiful hike among the red rocks. Anyone with two legs can do this hike and I highly recommend it. Lots of great places to stop and have a picnic so pack a lunch. We will definitely do this hike again in the summer.

This is a beautiful trail up into the Oak Creek Canyon. The scenery is spectacular and the hike itself is not terribly challenging. However, as all the information suggests, there are 13 creek crossings. The crossings are simply stones in the water and you need to jump from to the next to get across. If you have any balance problems,... More
