Hiking the West Fork Trail
Take dad for an early morning hike on West Fork Trail in Oak Creek Canyon, the most popular trail in the Coconino National Forest. There was a lot of talk that the West Fork Trail was very damaged by the fire last year, I assure you it is just as beautiful as before! The shutterbugs out there will love this hike; there are awe inspiring images throughout the entire hike. When you get to the bridge that crosses over the creek make sure to take a minute and just hang out and enjoy the scenery. Not to far from the bridge you come into a section of the canyon were towering cliffs engulf you. You can’t help but just stand there in amazement. Visit our West Fork Trail photo album.
