Nestled in the base of Oak Creek Canyon is a large cliff side swimming hole known as Grasshopper Point (928) 203-2900. This day-use site is popular with swimmers and picnickers alike. The swimming hole is shaded and cool, a good respite from the summer heat.  There are three popular trails accessible from the Grasshopper Point parking lot; Allen’s Bend goes north and connects with Casner Canyon Trail; it also goes south and connects with Huckaby Trail.
