Hiking Trail Nature / Park
Enjoy nature's sounds and colors by hiking West Fork Oak Creek Trail, the Coconino National Forest's most popular route. The trail follows the canyon floor between tall cliffs. The marked part of the trail is 5.1 km (3.2 mi) long in one direction. The flat, easy hike does require crossing a stream in several places. The trail continues for another 17.3 km (10.8 mi) after the marked section, where it becomes much more challenging. The trail is open year-round except for the periods of high fire danger, so check the status online before visiting. West Fork Oak Creek Trail is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Sedona Edition.
