During this time of the year the trees are changing colors in dramatic fashion. The golden maples (at least I think they are maples) are magnificent. All this set against the red rocks and turquoise sky is simply amazing.
It’s a well maintained trail along Oak Creek. Three miles each way but go at your own pace and enjoy the changing fall leaves and the creek that runs by. There is a $9 entry fee so bring some cash. I arrived late in the afternoon and didn’t get a chance to hike the full trail. I am told you might get a little wet as the trail crosses the creek. I will definitely make time for a return trip here.
