West Fork Trail

Hiking Trail or Trailhead
Typical creek crossing – William Bohan

ADA Accessibility Notes


The West Fork hike is one of our favorites.You'll pay $10 to park here. You'll be crossing the water about a dozen times (actually a total of 13 times if you hike to the end where you need to wade in the creek to continue, some 3.6 miles in from the parking area) as you hike the trail. You have to step from stone to stone to cross, so the hike isn't recommended in high water times (you'll get your feet wet!!). Because of the presence of water, there are many trees along the trail.

NOTE: Sedona hiking trails can change because of weather, Forest Service activity or other causes. For the latest trail description, go to, or purchase a copy of Great Sedona Hikes hiking guide available here.
