The main pools were pretty packed so we drove to a random turnout and hiking down to the creek. Found amazing waterfalls and pools with our own rock beach! Stayed there for a couple hours and only saw one other couple!
A generally crowded place on this planet but a little scrambling can put your mind in touch with the earth there.
I spent a few days in Sedona, including a great hike of Cathedral Rock.
Been here multiple times, the first when I was 5 or so years old in 1999.
Hung out at slide rock, and hiked up the canyon aways. Great fun!
You can bet this is where locals go to beat the heat. You can
find a bit more solitude by hiking into the West Fork of Oak Creek.
The snow never bothered me, either.
I climbed this route many times in my Ford Ranger while in college. A great place really. Can get crowded and choked with traffic. Lots of private property too. But solitude can be found.
Beautiful - but I was too much of a noobie to keep going once the trail faded and I had to get wet. Wish I had pressed on.
Have been to the canyon twice, this is one magnificent area!
This is a very pretty canyon. There was snow in the shaded areas where the sun doesn’t seem to shine. We didn’t have any problem since we were prepared for this. I saw a lot of people in the lower part of the canyon but no one else in the upper part.
This is a wonderful place.
