Take Hwy. 89 north out of Sedona toward Flagstaff through Oak Creek Canyon. About 12 miles (two miles past Slide Rock State Park) there is a parking area to the left of the highway. It is not well marked.
West fork is a very popular hiking area, especially in autumn. It is best to go during a week day, early in the A. M.
The West Fork of Oak Creek is one of the best places in Northern Arizona for fall foliage. This was shot during the early morning under several maple trees. These leaves were shot just where they fell. The log with leaves offered several opportunities for fall colors.
