Be sure to visit Oak Creek Canyon during your stay. They have great hiking trails and some fishing areas. Slide Rock for playing the creek water. I can recommend Junipine Condo Resort and L'Auberge Inn and restaurant. A completely different terrain than Sedona. Well worth it!

One of the most scenic drives in the USA. There are numerous campsites and hiking trails all through the canyon, and there are spectacular views from the park area at the top.

20 miles drive from Sedona to Flagstaff, twisting, winding road following Oak Creek. Heavily forested, and hairpin bends at the north end, with the road climbing over 2500 ft. Sedona 4500 ft above sea level - Flagstaff 6900 ft. Cold nights and still snow on the mountain outside Flagstaff.

There is a special, magical feel to this spot. A good vortex spot, Budda Beach is very "balancing and mind/spirit calming". Nice cemented trails for anyone and any age. Romantic, family oriented or anytime-any event! Spectacliar view of Cathedral Rock! Highly recommend and a " MUST See"

My wife and I enjoyed this hike perhaps most of all while in Sedona. The energy of the place was very good. The trail was easy. The ruins were impressive. Unfortunately the trail was closed (we were not told this when paying the admission fee so beware) - hence four/five "dots"

A wonder change in terrain after several days of desert hiking. The West Fork hike along the creek is lush, green, quiet and cool. The trail crosses back and forth across the creek 13 times. Wear shoes that you do not mind getting wet.

The awesome scenery and winding road of Oak Creek canyon is not to be missed if you're visiting Sedona. Make sure to stop at the Indian Gardens market for lunch. Their back courtyard and super fresh lunch fare is fantastic which makes it a favorite stop of ours.

Oak Creek Canyon and Oak Creek offer beautiful sites - water, trees, rocky cliffs. The area has many vistas and trails to explore. The temperature tends to be a bit cooler than downtown Sedona so it's a refreshing escape.

Sliderock is really great, but expect a BAD sunburn and COLD water. It's worth it. It's really fun and and the extreme temperatures make it easy to go in and out of the water. haha. definitely stop by if you are passing through!!

Oak Creek Canyon is littered with great hikes, awesome views, and quiet places to explore. Would suggest a visit if anywhere near Sedona.
