Willow Creek - Wiggins Crossing

This was a short hike down stream from the Wiggins Crossing Bridge on a clear but cold January day. The stream was mostly frozen over and the beaver ponds provided a "skating" area for the kids. It was late afternoon when we arrived at the crossing having already spent most of the day exploring Hells Hole cave and having a snowball fight on the rim.

I hiked down canyon about a half a mile before heading back to the vehicles at the crossing. The Coconino sandstone cliffs of the canyon are wonderful, as usual in these canyons that drain the Mogollon Rim. I believe a hike in the future from Wiggins Crossing through the Willow Creek Canyon to Hamilton Crossing on East Clear Creek would be a fun 3 day weekend. Total distance for that hike would be about 19 miles.

Wiggins Crossing location: 34.516889 x 110.987521
