|West Fork of Oak Creek: Oct. 13, 2012|
Trekkers come from all over the globe to see the high desert maples, oaks, willows and hop trees blaze in bittersweet scarlet and honey hues surrounded by soaring red rock walls. It's truely one of the top hikes to do in October. Maximum leaf intensity happens mid-October but color begins breaking around the 10th and lasts through the month. Also, don't forget that streamside sycamore-cottonwood color along Oak Creek peaks in late October thru early November. Trails to try for riparian fall foliage in Sedona are: Baldwin, Huckaby, Red Rock Crossing and anything in Red Rock State Park.
