Wild Cherry Overlook is a 2.25 mile round trip hike with 190 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 91 miles northeast of Winslow Arizona. October and May are the best months to enjoy this hike.
This 2-3 mile out and back hike is on private property and open to guests staying at the primitive Spider Rock Campground without a hired guide.
It follows a well-established route to a viewpoint overlooking Wild Cherry Canyon, a deep tributary to Canyon de Chelly.
From the viewpoint at the end of the trail, hikers will have a good look at a ruin in an alcove on the opposite canyon wall.
