This bucket list trail was finally crossed off the list for us after a cloudy autumn morning in Flagstaff had us yearning for warmer weather down elevation. We began at 8:30 on a Sunday morning, which is late for late-summer hiking, but early for every one else on the trail. We ended up parking about .2 north on 89 and made our way down. The leaves were just starting to change surrounding the trail, and the air was cool when we first started. The vibe hiking this trail in north sedona is much different with the 1000' elevation differential separating the West Fork trailhead and that of others in Sedona proper. Similarly the intimate forest nature of the trail was much different than the epic red rocks I've become accustomed to.

After some of the easiest 7 miles i've hiked, I wish i'd previously recommended it to parents and friends interested in a milder hike. While it isn't climactic, it is a great hike with shade cover and patches of exposed rock - hard to find in Sedona.
