Enjoyable walk in the woods. Once you drop down into the canyon take your time to make it all the way back to Fischer point and walk up into the canyon. 1st of the walk is shaded then you flatten out. Never to busy and...More

Great hike, can be hot, bring plenty of water. Go all the way thru the canyon easily, then a moderate climb to a point with great views. Retrace your steps back to trailhead parking which is signed and just off Lake Mary Road. Good signage...More

The hike was reviewed by Arizona Highways. The hike was nice with a reward of beautiful canyon walls at the end. Early May would likely have had wildflowers and more butterflies. It is a great break from the heat of the Sonoran Desert in Phoenix.

Northern Arizona has had a fairly good monsoon season this year (2008) allowing vegetation to flourish…including POISON IVY. Be aware! The Walnut Canyon (Sandy’s Canyon) area is overgrown with this poisonous plant! Ouch. Go somewhere else or, if you must (afterall, it is a beautiful...More
