Definitely our favorite hike in the
area, West Fork of Oak Creek is a few miles north of Slide Rock State
Park and about 10 miles north of Sedona.
The main tributary of Oak Creek, the West
Fork carves its way through a 14 mile canyon providing some beautiful
scenery and a great hike.
The hike is three miles (according to
the National Forest Service; but we'd argue that it was further...
more like 3½ to 4 miles) and it mirrors the creek the whole way.
In fact, we counted 13 crossings.
