Excellent trail for getting pictures of Cathedral Rock and surrounding formations from and along Oak Creek. This trail is much less frequently traveled than the Cathedral Rock trail, but suffers from the same lack of parking due to sharing a trail head. Several offshoots from this trail lead to the river, and the area is dark enough to get good pictures of the Milky Way at night, despite being within a stone's throw of several houses.
