West Fork of Oak Creek

West Fork Trail 108
Sedona, Arizona
Mileage - 6.21
Time - 2:46
AEG - 200ft

When it comes to hiking in Sedona, The West Fork of Oak Creek is arguably one of the most popular destinations in the area. On Saturday, Brittney and I discovered what the hype was all about, and it didn't disappoint. Simply put, this canyon is beautiful. In just a matter of 3 miles (one way) you'll walk through a healthy forest of pines and low-lying ferns with steep red and white canyon walls hovering hundreds of feet above you on either side of a crystal clear stream. Within this space are endless photo opportunities, whether you're into taking landscape pictures or just having fun climbing on the interesting rock formations, there is something for everyone. I wouldn't want to give away all the surprises, go check it out for yourself! Oh, and did I mention we saw paw prints from a bear in the sand?
