Secret Canyon hiking trail lies within the Red Rock Secret Mountain Wilderness in beautiful Sedona, Arizona. This is a wide valley surrounded on three sides by high red cliffs split by many deep, hidden canyons. This canyon is similar to the West Fork of Oak Creek as it is quite steep, densely wooded and contains a permanent stream with pools and waterfalls with some confined passageways. Secret Canyon is much less traveled so offers more tranquility.
The Jug within Salome Creek is an extremely fun canyon that resembles a water park. Best done in the morning in order to get in the water during the hot time of the day. This canyon can be done without a harness, as it only has one rappel which can be jumped 25′ into deep water.

The Horseshoe Dam is just 25 miles outside the beautiful town of Cave Creek. The dam is 1,500 feet long, 144 feet high. This dam is unique because there is a walking path which allows you to get behind the water flowing over the dam. You can get very close to the water below the dam which cascades down into a beautiful multi-tiered waterfall flowing over large rocks. The views are stunningly beautiful when there is a release of water happening. Just below Horseshoe Dam is some of Arizona’s best fishing.
Sycamore Falls located at the headwaters of Sycamore Creek in the 55,937 acre Sycamore Canyon Wilderness, this is a special place. The ponderosa pine forest and canyon country are relatively durable environments, but water is scarce and spring run-off powers Sycamore Falls usually no later than April each year. From April through November, however, this becomes one of the most popular rock climbing areas in the southwest, known as “Paradise Forks.”
