Sedona/Flagstaff 22-24th Hiking suggestions

Coming from Las Vegas and looking for the best hiking opportunities. I started researching online, (oak creek/bell rock) but there are SO many I have no way to choose which ones.

Looking for easy/moderate day hikes.

No more than 6 miles RT for each

Enjoy slot canyons or creek hikes etc

We are coming in a ford focus hatch.

Give me your best suggestions please!

Devils Bridge is an excellent option. Unless you have a high clearance 4 WD vehicle, you'll need to use the Chuckwagon trail.

West Fork is beautiful, but now that there's snow there, the creek crossings can be challenging.

Agree with RR. Devil's Bridge is great, if you have the time.

Could you elaborate on challenging? Having a female with me, I try to be prepared as possible for such situations. Any gear that would help me get across the creek crossings, or are they too swift and deep?

Thanks for the responses.

Crossing the creek on winter means and deep and cold. If you get your feet or clothes wet, you will be uncomfortable, male or female. Bring walking sticks to help keep your valance and avoid slipping. Don't be afraid to turn back if the water is too high.

West Fork is vastly different than the other hikes mentioned on this thread. It is a narrow forested canyon and is beautiful with or without snow. It is certainly worth a look, even if you don't hike the entire trail.
