If you take this short road, be sure to allow for time to visit the several vineyards that are along the way.

The views were beautiful. Kids loved the hike and I loved that it looped. No turning back, but short enough and difficult enough to keep our tweens happy.So different from the Grand Canyon from the day before.

Lovely winding road through the canyon, even in winter. There is a large area along the road where Native Americans sell their jewelry. Prices are good and they offer to negotiate price.

Based on recommendation from hotel, travelled up 89A to Oak Creek Canyon area. Beautiful, snow/ice in January. Stopped at West Fork hiking trail. With wife, 3 year old and stroller, attempted this hike which consists of a number of precarious traverses over Oak Creek Canyon. Not for faint of heart or ill equipped/prepared, despite being classified as "easy" hike. Cool... More

Absolutely "fantabulous" at every turn. A must see for all visitors to this area. Never thought it would take us this long to drive this short distance!

This is a nice drive up the canyon. If you are from a mountain state like we are, then it isn't probably worth taking the time to do this drive.

We drove through Oak Creek Canyon on 2 separate occasions; one when it was clear and sunny and one the morning after snow and frost. Both rides were absolutely gorgeous and the sights were amazing. Allow time to take in all of the views and you will not be disappointed. It doesn't cost a penny and you will enjoy what... More

Drive from Sedona to Flagstaff and enjoy the scenery. Great views and a twisting road to keep you entertained.

the ride thru Oak Creek Canyon was more and more beautiful at every turn in the road. Plenty of places to stop for pictures , which is a must. The sound of the water from the creek created a peaceful atmosphere while viewing the majestic scenery.

Typically of Sedona, this is a beautiful spot that most will see only from (close to) motrised vehicles, but that really rewards those willing to do a bit of hiking to get down into the bottom of the canyon. This can be achieved reasonably quickly (although steeply, which is of course more of an issue on the way back up)... More
