Directions from Flagstaff: Drive south 17.5 miles south from Flagstaff or north 9.5 miles from Sedona to about halfway between milepost 385 and 384. The trailhead is on the east side of the highway across from a few houses. The best place to park is at the Call O' The Canyon day area about a quarter mile north of the trailhead. This is a fee parking area.

Great hike worth the effort to find the trail head! Walk SOUTH on the east side of the road from the $10 paid parking lot. Keep walking, you will see a cement block / step and a trailhead marker from the road! Do NOT go into the woods stay on the road! Keep walking south. Trailhead is directly opposite a home at marker 10055 which is on the west side. First fork on the trail stay right! Excellent views at the top and most of the trail is under tree cover! Go early in the morning...

This hike may have been beautiful had we been able to find the trail. We got all the way up to the rock wall, but could not find a pass to get above it. The AllTrails map definitely does not line up with the starting marker across from West Fork Trail, so we never found it even though we walked down the highway a bit. We may try to find it again in the future if the starting point is marked better.

Parking was a challenge. Trail Head was hard to see at first, but trail was clearly marked once we were on it. Hike was great though, through the trees then out onto a beautiful view. Busy day in Sedona, but ran into only one other person.

Park at the parking lot for the West Fork Trail. 10 bucks for a day pass. Follow the trail out to the road, then cross the road, make a right and take about 200 steps down the road back towards downtown Sedona. The trailhead is across the street from a green address sign with the number 10553...at least I think that’s what it was. The trail marker is about 5 feet up the hillside and is brown so it is difficult to see. If you find the trail it is a quick incline but a great hike with great views! Get all the way to the top and you get a great view of Mt. Humphreys up In Flagstaff! Only saw one other hiker. Well worth it!

Although the TH is hard to find, it is so worth the effort. Uphill from the start, it is a great workout and isn't too long. All the way up you are surrounded by beautiful world class views and once at the top you won't be disappointed!
Highly recommend this hike!!

Terrific hike for those who prefer to go off the beaten path. The first half mile or so wind uphill through the woods and pine straw. The climb gets steeper at the end but the views are well worth the effort. Park at the West Fork lot and walk along the road for about .3 miles. The TH is somewhat hard to find. Total hike time about 1.5 hours. Warning: I disagree with AllTrails on the Easy rating. The trail is moderate plus, borderline hard given the steep elevation.

A few things to note. 1) the trail is very rugged near the top so be prepared. There are spots where you have to go through vegetation. 2) Its hard to stay on the trail on the way down - very easy to get lost or off trail so stay alert.

Difficult trail head to find. Had to walk along the highway to find the trailhead. not ideal. Parked at the west fork parking lot, then walked to the trail. Beautiful switchbacks to start the trail. Then skirt along the edge of the mountain and you look directly down oak creek canyon toward Sedona. Finish the trail on the plateau and enjoyed the view. Really liked the hike. Definitely not a little kid hike, or if you are too out of shape.
