Saturday, Oct 19th
Leaving McDonald's/Carefree Hwy sharply 8am!!
     We’ll meet Saturday morning at the McDonald's parking lot on Carefree Highway / I-17, where you can leave your vehicle if carpooling. 
(Just  NOTE: riders may want to offer to kick in a few $$ for gas and State Park parking fee - minimal).  
We should be at the West Fork around 9:30a.
Bring a sack picnic lunch to enjoy at the waterfall  :  )

We’ll have Happy Hour in Sedona later that day at ________???
Oak Creek Brewery and Grill at Tlaquepaque perhaps???  


Things to bring:  hiking shoes, walking stick (if desired), long sleeves???, hat or visor, change of shoes (if others get wet), lunch, water, a little TP and CAMERA. We’re hoping the fall colors will be gorgeous!  
This is a super easy trail but does have lots of rock hopping and creek crossings.   You can go as far as you want, with stopping to relax while waiting for the group to return.   There’s only one way in/out (unless you are good at rappelling??)  


Fyi, Once you get to the State Park, there’s an outhouse in the parking lot, which is the only real bathroom around.

Access To West Fork Oak Creek Trail

The entrance to the trail is next to the day park and picnic area at the "Call O'The Canyon" which is on the west side of Highway 89A in Oak Creek Canyon which is a steep canyon that connects Sedona to the high elevation rim leading to Flagstaff, Arizona. The parking area in half-way between mile markers 385 and 384 on Highway 89A.

During the high tourist seasons in the summer and spring, it can become very difficult to find free parking along 89A. Parking at the Call O' Canyon parking lot is nominally fee-based.

Directions To West Fork Trail

From Phoenix. Take Interstate 17 North from the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. Take Exit 298, just north of Camp Verde to State Route 179 North. Proceed north past the Village of Oak Creek to the "Y" junction with Highway 89A. Turn right onto 89A. Proceed through Uptown Sedona and cross the bridge over Oak Creek that begins the canyon climb. Entrance to the trail parking area will be about 9-10 miles until you reach a wide turn in the road. Turn left into the large parking area.
