West Fork of Oak Creek - Sedona, AZ (September, 2002)

 
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 3 to 4 miles) and it mirrors the creek the whole way.  In fact, we counted 13 crossings.
