There is no way to describe the drive through the canyon. It is just unbelievable. Even the short switchbacks are great. And when you get to the top, you can pull off and go to the viewing area and see the whole ride from the top. Be careful of hikers who do not look where they are going. They are... More

Beautiful drive, up past the switchbacks. Elevation over 6000'. Bought jewelry from the locals at the scenic overlook at the top. Took tons of photos.

It is 16 miles from Sedona to the 6400 elevation view at Oak Canyon. The road is gorgeous but a bit scary since it follows a huge drop below and you are on a single small lane going 15 MPH. But the view at the top is stunning looking down well over a mile deep. The facilities are fine there... More

Beautiful get away from the 100+ degree temperatures of Scottsdale. The best hike going is West Fork where you crisscross the river in many spots.

This road on the weekends is bumper to bumper so get on the road early before all the clowns in RV's run the roads at 5mph and block traffic back to Flagstaff. Hit all the stops along the way as the canyon is really awesome to see. It's a totally different scene from Red Rock Canyon If your in a... More

As long as you aren't in an oversized (length restrictions) vehicle, Oak Creek Canyon is a must see when visiting Sedona! You see every type/style of geo formations in the giant canyon walls, all different colors of rock, lots of trees & a pretty creek along the road except for in the switchbacks. A biker or sportscar drivers dream road,... More

The hwy thru the Canyon is a mountainous climb up several thousand feet till you are at 7000 elevation. Beautiful, lush canyon, if you don't like driving in mountains, reroute!

Breathtaking scenery! I've hiked this canyon dozens of times, and still I find myself carrying the camera and taking lots of photos... all of which are stunning.
