|Trip Report : November 2, 2013|
Red Rock Crossing is a symbol of the American Southwest and the most
photographed spot in Arizona. It is a favorite place for artists and art
classes to visit and paint. This frequently photographed spot has Cathedral
Rock as a backdrop. So bring your camera and do not forget a pair of
binoculars for wildlife watching.
We’ll hike the Ridge and Carroll Canyon Trail to Red Rock Crossing on Oak Creek. The scenery along these well-maintained trails is nice on the way to Crossing. There are two options:
Option 1: Hiking to Crescent Moon Ranch and walking along Oak Creek to enjoy fall colors.
Option 2: We’ll push on to Cathedral Rock by wading across Oak Creek and hike the Templeton Trail out and back.
The leader will lead Option 1.
• Sturdy hiking boots
• At least 3 liters of water
• Rain poncho
• Hat, sunblock, sunglasses
• Lunch or snacks
• Your smiles :)
