I've done this hike once during the winter and once during the fall. In my opinion only worth doing for the fall foliage, otherwise just an average hike, you can find much better in the area.

I have taken many groups of kids on this beautiful trail. Gorgeous views of the canyon and creek, old homestead ruins and a variety of plants. Can be icy during the winter!

I would HIGHLY recommend this trail, particularly on a hot day. Its shaded for a large portion which is refreshing. The stream crossings add some humor and delight to the walk. The views are beautiful. Don't skip this one.

West Fork continues to be one of my favorite hikes. The rock formations are gorgeous. When I first came here, it was summer. We found the trail cool and refreshing. My most recent trip was in December. The creek crossings were treacherous due to slippery rocks. We only crossed once and turned around at the second crossing. The creek, however,... More

This is such a fun hike. It is kid friendly and solid ground. You do have to cross a few creeks to get to the other side but if you fall in it's shallow. The crossing is easy. It's so beautiful and the sound of water. You can picnic there and on a hot day you would have shade. This... More

Builds confidence as i was able to cross all 13 creek crossings. Perfect time of year too - we had a cold but very satisfying hike.

Great hike for beginner to intermediate.Beautiful scenery, so different than Sedona. Great hike to do on a hot day. the start of the trail is not as wooded but once you get a little ways in, it is all in the woods.

A fairly easy hike at the beginning, but the fallen-tree river crossings are a little challenging - especially for seniors.

We were hiking with a 9 & 6 yr old and started at 2:00. Between stopping for pictures and some snacks we made it to the end and back by 6:00 pm. Since sunset was 5:30 it made for an even more interesting hike but we made it out. It's a fun and easy hike and was cool in November... More
