Summer is the perfect time to enjoy early morning hiking, biking, strolling and sightseeing! And definitely great for a sunset stroll in the red rocks. Our featured hike for the weekend is West Fork Trail, for an early morning or evening hike! If you are out and about in the red rocks this weekend, drink plenty of water! Tips for Summer Hiking in Sedona, AZ
West Fork Oak Creek Trail
There are a number of reasons why West Fork is the most popular trail on the Coconino National Forest. You’ll know some of them once you’ve strolled beside the pleasant little stream that ripples along the canyon floor and look up, way up, at the dizzying cliffs that tower above it. This hike is extremely popular during the fall, but it is also a great hike for an early morning or late evening hike in the summer. There is plenty of shade to help cool you off and the scenery is breath taking! I also highly suggest to bring your camera along.
To access the West Fork Oak Creek Trail drive north 9.5 miles from Sedona to about halfway between milepost 385 and 384. The trail-head is on the west (left) side of the highway. Visit our West Fork Trail photo album.
