See the fiery red rock formations that Oak Creek Canyon is famous for as you head deep into the steep-walled gorge. Visitors can drive or hike down to the canyon, where the trails snake through narrow cliffs and swimming holes spill out on either side. Every overlook doubles as the perfect picnic site, and a number of fish-filled hot spots almost guarantees a great catch. On your way to the canyon stop at Oak Creek Canyon Vista, one of the most photographed overlooks in the state. Little shops sell Native American jewelry and local artists display their work along the pathways.
