This trail is in a heavily wooded area and because of the heavy woods the views aren't what I wanted. It's shaded and there are a lot of water crossings. Be very careful of the slippery wet rocks! The end of the trail is a big letdown....for such a long hike I was very disappointed.

NOTE: Intended to complete this great hike with a group of hikers to see that the trail is still closed as of June 26, 2014. ( West Fork Oak Creek #108 Area Status: Temporarily Closed United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service). I WOULD CHECK THE INTERNET SITE TO SEE WHEN THE HIKING TRAIL RE-OPENS

This is a wonderful hike. Fairly flat, not too challenging. Peaceful, quiet, beautiful scenery. Several shallow stream crossings make this hike extra fun.

We did this hike in late May, in the afternoon, after hiking Devil's Bridge in the morning. Both hikes were beautiful in their own ways and it was great to experience the contrast. The tree shaded paths and crossing the creek were wonderful experiences in the heat of the afternoon. We even stopped to take our boots off and relax... More

We have hiked this outstanding trail several times. Our favorite part is hiking near and over Oak Creek. Another great part about this hike is all the shade trees. This is not a difficult trail to hike but the ground is uneven and you need to watch for roots and rocks; one of the things we like about it.

My family enjoyed this hike on a beautiful morning. This hike was much different than the others we had done as it was lush green forest with 13 streams to cross! (Not sure what is left after the fire unfortunately) most of the walk was shaded by the trees and it was an easy hike where we saw people of... More

This trail is great for everyone. Took the kids and grandparents. Not too hard, great variety of things to see.....remnants of old structures, the river, and natural beauty all around you. Kids loved, loved, loved this day of exploration and adventure.

I rated this under Oak Creek Canyon as well. I had the great fortune to hike this trail before the recent fire in the canyon. It is a lovely hike, but I don't know what it looks like since the fire.

This is a beautiful train, with stunning views of rock formations very much like what you will see in Zion. We were there as spring was in full blossom, and the trees were in fresh green. It is a long trail, however, so bring lots of water and snacks and be prepared for a number of creek crossings and some... More

This is a nice place to hike, but not as good visually as places like Bell Rock. The trail isn't very well marked in some areas, but there is minimal elevation change in the 3.3 mile main trail.
