Summary: A hike up a beautiful canyon with red rock views
Challenge Level: Moderate
Hiking Distance: About 2.4 miles each way, almost 5 miles round trip
Trailhead Directions: From the "Y" (the intersection of State Route 89A and State Route 179), drive west on SR 89A towards Cottonwood 3 miles. Turn right on to Dry Creek Road. Stay on Dry Creek for 3 miles and turn right on FR 152. Proceed for 3.4 miles to the parking area on your left. FR 152 can be a very rough dirt road so a high clearance vehicle is recommended.
Description: This hike goes up a very picturesque canyon, following Dry Creek creek bed. You'll encounter the H S Trail about 1/2 mile into the hike and the Davis Miller Trail about 2 miles into the hike. At about 2 1/4 miles you'll be in a pine forest. We stopped after hiking 2.4 miles. The trail continues on and becomes a hard trail but some of the views are outstanding.
