Overview
Starting from what is designated as the OK TH. This might be better referred to as the Dawa TH, as that is the trail that actually starts from the parking area. Parking is alongside Boynton Pass Rd. With enough room for about 10 vehicles. The OK Trail itself is very short (.3 miles), but offers several options once you get out there. There is no water or facilities so be prepared for the time and distance that you chose.

Hike
To access the OK Trail, one needs to hike in along the Dawa for about 200 yards. There will be a signed juncture where the OK deviates from the Dawa. The OK is a designated trail, but it is so short it is hard to justify a trail description. That being said....it is just over 0.3 miles in length and acts as a nice access point to the Cockscomb Area Trail System (CATS). (I had never heard of this grouping but it makes sense with the trails located in this area).

The OK Trail heads in a southerly direction losing about 30 ft during its 0.3 miles. It may seem as if you are descending more because during the last half a berm bank rises up on the east side giving the impression that you are descending. The trail is composed of compact red Sedona dirt and with a few brief exception is fairly smooth throughout. The trail starts off exposed but becomes nicely shaded as it approaches it juncture with the AZ Cypress Trail. The views are somewhat choked but there are brief views of the Sedona vista, primarily to the west and north. Once reaching the AZ Cypress Trail you have several options: turning around for a very short in and out or making a loop of various lengths.
