This was mine and my family's first hiking trial in Sedona. We didn't know where we should go because there were so many options. We settled on this trail because we wanted some water involved at some point. It was nice and quiet the whole time, not a lot of traffic and the views were gorgeous. The only complaint I have it there was no distinguished end to the trail. At one point you cross over a tree trunk and then it takes you to some river rock ahead. Just a little further is the Oak Creek. And the trail just seemed to disappear. Otherwise it was a beautiful EASY hike for my family!!!

Very nice trail in the Oak Creek area with very little foot traffic which is much appreciated. Filled with wildflowers and wildlife.

Lots of wildflowers along the trail and beautiful views. Be careful of poison oak toward the end .

Pretty cool spot. Crowded but if you go further south, there are a few spots that hidden...still very rocky to navigate though. Water was cool and the scenery was great.
