Such a beautiful drive, don't miss it. Unfortunately in August 2014 most all of the scenic view spots were closed due to a recent fire, but nonetheless, it is a spectacular road.

So peaceful. Not much parking beside the creek but don't miss slide rock state park where you can get your feet in it. Mind the slippery rocks there have been falls and head injuries there.

I recommend staying at the Briar Patch Inn if you're looking for tranquility and a location right by the Creek. Its about 3 miles outside of Sedona, but the location and staff are worth it.
