This unique desert canyon is part of the Oak Creek State Wildlife Area. Nestled between the sprawling expanse of the L. T. Murray State Wildlife Recreation Area and the Wenatchee National Forest, the Oak Creek State Wildlife Area holds some of the richest wildlife habitat in the state. The dry desert country is popular wintering country for deer and elk and home to countless birds. The Hardy Canyon Trail leads you through a dense thicket of wild rose that, when in bloom, provides one of the most wonderfully fragrant wilderness treks we’ve encountered.
