"The Oak Creek trail is a nice, easy, pleasant hike for you and your dog. It offers scenic views of Rainbow Mountain and Mount Wilson, as well as the Calico Hills on your return trip. The first portion of the trail is well graded, while the second portion is a bit more rugged. This is a great trail to take your dog hiking on, because you can get some easy exercise in the beginning of the hike with a bit of adventure once you are in the canyon. Under foot and paw: Dirt trail and rocky wash."

"A Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area day hike that features stands of live shrub oak and sandy “beaches” along the wash. Hike up the old road to its end. Now follow the trail around “Potato Knoll” to the left. Oak Creek Canyon is known for its nice stands of live shrub oak and the sandy “beaches” along the wash. Seasonal waterfalls can be found in the canyon. The term live oak means that a plant is evergreen—it keeps its leaves all year. Shrub oaks often grow in thick stands with mountain mahogany and manzanita, creating formidable obstacles to cross-country hikers. However, the dense brush provides important cover for wildlife."
