Oak Creek Canyon is a breathtaking experience and is known as one of the topmost scenic drives. The early drive through to the place is lined with lush Ponderosa pine tree forests. As one nears the edge of the creek, before descending into the Oak Creek Canyon, there is a stop at Oak Creek Canyon Vista, wherefrom one can enjoy a bird’s eye aerial view of the place. Native American Indians generally occupy stands here selling jewelery. The descend is equally thrilling, with road inclining into the dense foliage of the forests.

Oak Creek Canyon Reviews & Ratings
Beautiful creek very serene. Accessing it can be a little tricky as it runs parallel to the main road but is off a sharp decent. After finding an appropriate spot to park (across the street from some shops) it was possible to go down a steep flight of a couple steps.
If you have the chance to see this place do it. Its impossible to describe the beauty that you see as you drive through the canyon
Beautiful and several spots to get to the water off the road. Just wish there were even more opportunities to get to water.
This is misleading a lot of people. Oak Creek Canyon is huge, and if you drive to the dot, you will be on private property. I know, because I live 50 feet from the dot and we are inundated with tourists because of this. I don't understand why Google Maps won't fix this and send people to the Indian Gardens store or Slide Rock, rather than sending them to private property. It's a beautiful place, but please don't follow the map! Stop at the Forest Service info center near the store and find out about Oak Creek Canyon. Thanks!
forest is beautiful.
