This National Monument allows one to see first-hand how cliff dwellers lived hundreds of years ago. A must see for anyone heading to the Grand Canyon south rim area: don't forget your National Parks passport!

The drive through the canyon was stunning. Stopping at the lookout is worth a visit. Such a great photo opportunity

It was a shame that the run off from the fire caused the creek to run grey and be a hazrd to swim in. But it was still so beautiful.

There is a reason this is considered to be one of the most scenic stretches of highway in the United States. The winding road through the canyon takes you past the stunning red cliffs of Sedona, along Oak Creek and surrounds you with the most stunningly beautiful foliage you can imagine. Just magical! Trees arch over the roadway and lush... More

Many shops to walk through and enjoy. There was also a few restaurants & food court, but all was quite pricey.

We drove to the Grand Canyon from Sedona through Oak Creek Canyon. Scenic drive up, but an even better and more beautiful drive back down through it. It's only 25 miles between Sedona and Flagstaff, but the slow, curvy drive takes you a bit longer. Stop at the state park/scenic overlook at the top of the canyon for a quick... More

The babbling brook, the fishermen casting their lures, the canoes racing the waters, the well maintained roads and the scenery placed there just for the viewing.

There's a lot of different places that you can park and head down for a picnic along the creek. The kids can play in the water, even fully swim, and the adults can chat and enjoy a meal. The area is clean and there are also campgrounds nearby where you can spend a weekend.

Right now the entire canyon with the exception of Slide Rock is closed to hiking and creek access. No date on when it might re-open. USFS closed access b/c of fears of flash floods and debris flows/mudslides coming down canyon from the recent burned areas above Slide Rock. So no hiking/swimming until you get just below Sedona proper. Red Rock... More
