AB Young Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This is a good trail to the west rim of Oak Creek Canyon, in the Red Rock–Secret Mountain Wilderness. It offers the best views of Oak Creek Canyon from any of the rim trails. The AB Young Trail was originally built to move cattle to and from the rim country; it was improved by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s.Walk through the campground and cross Oak Creek. Turn left (south) on the trail that parallels the creek, and watch for the signed junction with the AB Young Trail. It is a good, maintained trail that turns sharply right and starts climbing to the northwest."

Awesome trail. It was quite steep, gaining 1700 feet of elevation in under a mile and a half. The view from the top was outstanding. Watch out for thunderstorms though.
