Dry Creek Road Professional Reviews and Guides
"This is a demanding cross-country hike to the Mogollon Rim at the headwaters of Dry Creek, in the Red Rock–Secret Mountain Wilderness. The first 1.1 miles is an easy on-trail hike."
--Bruce Grubbs, Hiking Northern Arizona (Falcon Guides).
"The hike into Dry Creek Canyon does not showcase the majestic panoramas. Instead, it highlights the beautiful red rock formations in their intimate canyon surroundings. The trail heads up creek into the canyon between large red rock buttes."
--Robert Stone, Day Hikes in Sedona, Arizona (Day Hike Books).
"This is an easy hike into the headwaters of Dry Creek, in the Red Rock–Secret Mountain Wilderness."
