This is the southernmost of three trails that climb to the east rim of Oak Creek Canyon. Of the three, it offers the broadest and most varied views. However, it is also the hottest and longest. The Thomas Point Trail starts in a mixed conifer forest characteristic of Arizona canyons but quickly breaks out into more open chapparal. Above this point, vistas are broad and impressive with good views both down canyon, toward Sedona and the crimson bluffs near Slide Rock, and cross canyon to the steep cliffs of one of Oak Creek's largest tributaries, West Fork Canyon.

If you chose to continue all the way to the top, the trail winds through the manzanita and scrub oak to the canyon rim where you'll be rewarded with a nice view of the San Francisco Peaks near Flagstaff, about thirty miles away.

Rating: Moderate to strenuous

Hiking time: 1-1.5 hours round trip

Notes:

  • No motor vehicles.
  • This trail can be hot and dry in summer.
