Description

This route starts at the large AZ Trail parking lot on Old Walnut Canyon Road. Signs to Fisher Point will guide you the entire way. The first 1.2 miles of the trail roll gently through open pine and oak forest, before descending steeply into a tributary of Walnut Canyon. This stretch of trail drops through interesting terrain and involves several tight switchbacks.

After 2.2 miles, look for a signed intersection to a lookout spur trail (0.2 miles). This is a worthwhile detour. The viewpoint itself lies just beyond a fence at the end of the spur trail (look for a short ladder to get you over the fence).

About a mile further along the AZ trail, you'll hit a second signed intersection for yet another lookout point. This time the spur is 0.7 miles each way, but don't wimp out on taking the side trip - this second viewpoint is one of the highlights of the Walnut Canyon Rim! Head to a limestone rib that juts out into the canyon, getting narrower and narrower as you go. Enjoy the killer views on both sides of the peninsula of land.

Continuing on the AZ Trail toward Fisher Point the trail gets closer and closer to the rim of Walnut Canyon. Eventually, the trail features a spectacular length right along the edge with outstanding views into the canyon (just don't get too distracted - its a long way down!). Fisher Point marks the last lookout point, and the turnaround point back to your car.
