Not bad if you can't leave the pavement but the overlook doesn't do justice to the beauty of Oak Creek Canyon. Hey, at least they have bathrooms.

We stopped on our way from Flagstaff to Sedona - 89A is definitely the way to get between the two towns. We really like the opportunity to shop without the crowds of people and meet the artist or friends of the artist. The views are ok, much better ones in Sedona but still worth the stop.

We decided to do a pull out here and take a few minutes to enjoy the vista and the fine summer day. It was just a nice pleasant stop

Overlook was Ok. The view is not as great as I expected. Had been there years ago in December with snow on the ground. perhaps the season impacted the view or what we experienced. the drive up the canyon is lovely

A beautiful view. Be sure to stop here if you are on your way in or out of Sedona. There is ample parking and bathroom facilities. There are Native American artisans selling there crafts and jewelry.

The drive up the hill takes a good 40 mins from Sedona, but the view is so worth it. Personally, I didn't find it to be the best view in the area, but just another place to go see an amazing site. Plus the curves are fun to drive around - gets down to 15 miles an hour a couple... More

There are great views of Oak Creek Canyon from here. The drive from either direction is very pretty as well. There are several tables set up here with Native Americans selling jewelry and ornaments. The prices were a little high but the sellers weren't rude or yelling to get your attention.

The road from Sedona is winding and tortuous, but the view at the end is gorgeous. You need a rest after the drive so stop and enjoy the vista. There are multiple overlooks so try them all.

We were driving up through Oak Creek Canyon from Sedona to Flagstaff and decided to make a quick stop at the Overlook. This was really cool, the views were awesome. Easy access and paved walkways. Just a nice place to stop for a short break.
