I've driven this road many times in the past, always with a 2wd sedan. I made it with my Jetta, but there were places that were very tough to drive. Views were as beautiful as ever,but escaped car undercarriage damage only by luck. Next time will take the Saturn suv.

We first learned about Schnebly Hill Rd when we rented a 2 person Razr from Sedona ATV and Buggy Rentals. The road starts out paved and then turns into a dirt road. About 3 miles up, there is a right turn that offers an incredible elevated view of Sedona which is a great place to watch the sunset. Not a... More

We took a Hummer H3 Alpha truck up the bumpy trail. Stopped at the Cow Pies Trail to wander up for an epic view of Sedona before stopping again at the top Vista View and continuing out out to 17. Apparently we did the trail a bit backwards, and I can understand why you might rather start at the top... More

This was our first self driven trail in Sedona. We've had great experiences with guided Pink and Red Jeep tours in the past, yet wanted to venture out on our own this time. We rented a jeep and chose Schnebly because of limited time and the desire to start easy. The trail was exactly as described... Mostly 5mph with lots... More

This road up from Sedona is NOT for the faint of heart...probably wouldn't advise taking a regular sedan (although we have seen some)...very steep/rocky and a bit scary in parts. If you want a nice ride without all the scary stuff, try coming from the other end and stopping at the overlook instead.

Oh my goodness is this ever a way to abuse a rental car. It's an understatement to call it a dirt road for it is a ROCK road.

Completed this experience with Safari Jeep Tour ... Road is rough even for a jeep ... You will get jostled to some extent due to deep ruts and exposed rocks to climb over ... there are some steep drop-offs on this road and their a gradual incline and descent. Great views and scenery on the sunset tour. This is not... More

First warning - don't try and drive this road by yourself in your family sedan. It is very treacherous in spots and I'm glad we were with an experienced guide in a specially equipped jeep. This Scenic Rim tour is a must do if you want to see the panorama of the area from a special view point. It's ok... More

unfortunately we couldn't make it cause we didn't have a proper car, so we stopped at the beginning of the road, and it has a beautiful view

IA very popular jeep ride offered by many companies in Sedona. If you don't have a high clearance vehicle do NOT go past the viewing area before the asphalt roads end. As locals I have seen many rental cars attempt this road and they regret it. Getting towed off this road can be very expensive and can cause seriously damage... More
