“A short mellow and fun trail”— Condor77 77
From the junction of Routes 89A and 179 (the "Y") in Sedona, take 89A north 2.5 miles to Grasshopper Point on the right (milepost 376.7). Drive down to the recreation area parking lot (you'll pay a fee here) or park in a roadside turnout 1/2 miles north of Grasshopper Point and walk down the access road (.2 miles) to the north end of Allens Bend Trail.
The trail begins on the southeast side of the recreation area parking lot at Grasshopper Point. The trailhead sign is at the kiosk near the covered picnic table.
The trail is near level and mostly in full shade from remnants of an old orchard and various native riparian trees. It follows along the foot of a rock wall on the left, a short distance from Oak Creek, which can be heard but is seldom in sight.
Several short paths provide access to this scenic creek for fishing, swimming and picnicking. Be careful of poison ivy. The trail ends at the Casner Canyon Trail. Return by the same route for a pleasant 1-mile run. The trail is probably named for Charles R. Allen, a photographer who homesteaded at the location of the present Junipine Cabins further upstream.
