If there is only one thing you HAVE to do while you are visiting Sedona, it's take a hike!!!

Sedona is known to many as the most beautiful place in America. There is even an old saying, "God created the Grand Canyon, but He lives in Sedona." But to really experience the splendor of Sedona, you have to get out of the jeep, put you feet on the ground and start walking!!

But where do you go with almost 3 million acres of national forest, over 300 miles of marked trails and seven major canyons? You could literally explore this land for a lifetime and not see it all. You could choose to go where many people visit: Cathedral Rock, The Chapel, Airport Mesa...the list goes on.

But, we encourage you to get off the beaten path and experience other amazing vistas, ancient ruins, seclusive swimming holes, deep canyons, sacred ceremonial sites and so much more!!!

Our guided hikes are unique, usually cost half of what other guides charge and come with exclusive services not yet offered anyplace else.

We offer professional photography complete with memorable keepsakes, "brown bag brunch" specials that include great local foods and the option to weave in simple ceremony. It's all up to you. Just let us know how much time you have, what you'd like to see and experience and we will customize a guided tour around you and your interests.

Hike Sedona ~ West Fork Trail

A Scenic Drive and A Beautiful Hike

Hike Sedona ~ West Fork Trail

Trail Description

Perhaps the most popular and beautiful hike in Sedona and about half way up Oak Creek Canyon between uptown Sedona and the edge of the Colorado Plateau. Getting to the trailhead is one of the most scenic drives in the country, according to Rand-McNally maps.

This is a gorgeous trail with a lot of flora, canyon walls and overhangs. There are a number of water crossings, so not a good trail to hike when the water is running high. About 2.2 miles in there is a nice red rock overhang. About 2.5 miles in there is a small side trail to the left that leads to a cave.

An incredible fall hike as there are a lot of deciduous trees; usually mid to late October.

The parking lot is gated and attended with a small parking fee. Gates open at 8:00 am and often fills quickly. Check the closing time and be sure to be back in time to leave.

In approximately 3.3 miles the trail in essence comes to an end, unless you would like to go further and wade across the creek.
