This is a 6+ mile round trip hike (in and out same trail). It is ideal for all abilities, gradual ups and downs, a few steeper sections but short ones, a few stairs, a few creek crossings (but all are easy to cross with well...More

We went on this trail in early March. The previous two weeks had dropped about 40 inches of snow! Most was melted by the time we journeyed here, but the little snow left made for the most beautiful sights! The trail winds and crosses the...More

We did about a 5-6 miles into the canyon and back. A beautiful hike with many small streams to cross. It was sometimes a challenge, keeping my feet out of the water. But fun and beautiful!

A perfect morning hike. $10 fee + ($1 for a map) was definitely worth it. Dress in layers, as it was warm when we started, but it gets cool the further in you go. There is a stack of walking sticks piled up before you...More

Total trail length is 4 miles. We only did about 1.5 of that due to a bad back issue but what we did was beautiful! Get here early as the parking lot fills fast!!

It's definitely a different setting then most trails. Lots of trees and foliage, and lots of creek crossings. Weather was perfect.

Awesome hike. 13 creek crossings the more we did the easier they got. Saw snow. Awesome scenery of cliffs and streams. Mild inclines. Not difficult. Very different from the other hikes we took!

For once there was no where dangerous to fall to, just cold. You cross the creek around 10 times balancing on rather thin tree trunks, the kids love it. When we were there, There was the strangest combination of 20degrees and snow and ice in...More

Not being experienced hikers, the hubby and I were somewhat concerned that this trail might be too hard for us. I had spent many nights researching hiking trails in Sedona and the West Fork trail always had mixed information. Some sources said it was 13...More

Parking was not bad. You have to pay, of course. Sticks are a necessity since you will be crossing the creek numerous times. We hiked only about half way. But I understand farther on, you must hike in the creek itself. Good... More

We will be hiking this trail among many others while in Sedona in May. We are VERY confused about parking here. We understand that there is a paid parking area for $10.00 that fills up early in the morning. While we intend to be there early in the morning, we are curious about what to do if the lot is already full. Some say park on the road for free. Some say you will be ticketed if you park on the road. Some say you can park on the road if you have a Red Rock pass (no idea what that is or where to buy one - is it good for anything else, or just this one strip of highway???) Some say you can legally park along the side of the road only IF you have an "America the Beautiful National Parks Annual Pass" displayed in your window (we will have one of those for sure, but since this is not a National Park, that doesn't sound true). Does anyone know FOR SURE what we should do if the parking lot is full and we don't want to get a ticket while in a rental car. Can we LEGALLY park on the side of the road here? Thanks for any advice anyone can offer!!!

If you coming from Phoenix you will "feel" the traffic on your way to this point when hitting 89A as there is a main attraction on the way before the W Fork (Sliding Rock Park). It will give you a pulse of what is going on... More
