This was a great hike through the canyon! Wooded area. Not a lot of up and down but will take a few hours. Beautiful hike!

Loved this hike in West Fork Oak Creek Canyon. Crossed several creeks and enjoyed the woods, forest and canyon walls. Much cooler on a hot day than some of the other hikes in Sedona, so if you need a shady option, this is a good...More

Hi. We will be there March 12th and want to hike the trail. What do you recommend we take for footwear with regards to water levels? Do people take walking sticks?

It's an out-and-back trail and it crosses the creek several times so be sure to wear waterproof shoes or be ready for some wet feet! It took us 4 hours total which includes time to take pictures and stand at some spots... More
