Huckaby Trail Professional Review and Guide
"A fine day hike on a trail on the Coconino National Forest that follows Oak Creek for part of the way. At first, the Huckaby Trail goes west. After the Margs Draw Trail junction, the trail turns right and follows an old road down into Bear Wallow Canyon. This is the canyon north of the trailhead. Follow the old road across normally dry Bear Wallow Canyon and out the north side. Here the newly constructed foot trail leaves the old road and contours northeast above the canyon. Soon a switchback takes you to the north as the trail begins to work its way toward Oak Creek."
--Bruce Grubbs, Hiking Northern Arizona (Falcon Guides).
We started at the south trail head with intention sof extending the trail at the north end to Wilson Canyon. Good thing because when we arrived at the bridge at the north end of the trail we couldn't cross Oak Creek due to high water. The trail covers the beautiful types of geography encompassed in the red Roick area, from forest, creek bottom with trees and red rock. A moderate trail that we enjoyed. Part of the trail overlooks the village of Sedona so if you want a wilderness hike this isn't for you. We were there late February and ran into to quite a few folks around late morning into early afternoon. I would imagine this would be quite busy during the busy season.
