Fall Color Hike - Wilson Mountain (Sedona Area)

Description: Each year I like to hike to go see the changing colors or fall. This year, we will head up Wilson Mountain in Oak Creek Canyon. This trail is a lot less crowded that the famous West Fork trail. The north side of Wilson Mountain climbs from the creek, up through hardwood forests up to the top of the peak for some great views of Oak Creek Canyon.
Difficulty: Moderate-Difficult, Distance RT: 8 miles
Start Elevation: 4800 ft., Elevation Gain: 2200 ft.
Drive Time: 2.5 hours, Water to Bring: 3 liters
Meeting Time/Place: 7:30 AM, Pyle Recreation Center; 8:00 AM, Denny’s I17 and Bell
Leader: Mark
RSVP By: Friday, October 19, 7 PM
Special Instructions: Bring lunch and your camera. After the hike we can stop by the creek and for a celebration beverage and a bite on the way home.

    I will be there and can meet Corina (yay! Glad you're coming) at the Bell Rd Denny's stop so all canines can join if that works for everyone and I can hitch a ride? :)

    Hi Corina, it is a dog friendly trail. I may bring mine as well. Can you accommodate on other passenger as well? Just checking for car pool plans. I may also leave him behind to just take one vehicle. Let us know. Mark

    Hi Soles,
    Looking forward to Saturday’s hike up north in Sedona and wanted to check in for a headcount. We have gone from 8 hikers to now just 4. I have already confirmed Lorrie who is riding with me, and I was going to take my dog. But if we hold at only 4 we can just all ride up in my 4 door truck and Buddy can chill at home. Chase and Megan if you get this please post a quick confirmation that you are still a go and if you are meeting at the Tempe Pyle center location or at the north Phoenix Bell I17 meeting location. Thanks! Mark

    Hey Mark,
    Bummed I can't go. Fell off a horse yesterday and can barely walk!

    Hi Soles, the weather in Sedona over the next 10 days is 70s to low 40s which should help the leaves change color right on time. And perfect hiking weather! Should be a good hike:)
