From Sedona drive about ll miles north on Highway 89A. Turn left into the West Fork trailhead parking area.
This is a very popular trail, so try to go on weekdays and early. Also, watch out for poison ivy. The trail crosses the creek several times. Buttresses of Coconino sandstone tower above, while the canyon floor is filled with a forest of exceptionally tall trees.
This nature trail takes you through the spectacular West Fork of Oak Creek Canyon in the Red Rock-Secret Mountain Wilderness. Vertical sandstone cliffs tower hundreds of feet above the perennial stream, and the floor of the canyon is shaded by a delightful mix of old-growth Ponderosa pine and Douglas fir, as well as streamside deciduous trees. The trail is 11 miles north of Sedona, Arizona and it's about 6 miles out and back. The best season is from April through November.
