Summary: A hike through the forest that follows Dry Creek
Challenge Level: Moderate
Hiking Distance: About 2 1/4 miles one way, 4 1/2 miles total
Trailhead Directions: From the "Y" (the intersection of State Route 89A and State Route 179), drive west on SR 89A for about 3 miles and turn right on to Dry Creek Road. Follow Dry Creek Road for 2 miles and turn right on FR 152. Follow FR 152 for about 4 1/2 miles to the end. Park here. FR 152 can be a very rough road, requiring a high clearance vehicle.
Description: The trailhead is located near the Vultee Arch trailhead. This 4.5 mile round trip moderate hike follows the path cut by Dry Creek, crossing it about a dozen times and provides nice views of towering red rock formations and a gentle uphill hike through a nice forest. You can hike further up the creek bed if you like.
