A beautiful drive with wonderful Red Rock scenery. There are great views of Bell Rock and Courthouse Butte. Easy access to many trail heads and vistas.

You can't decide which way to look. One vista seems more beautiful than the next. If you can, plan to take a drive at sunrise or sunset

The red rocks have a beauty all of their own and you just have to see them to get the pure beauty of them. Stunning

We love driving into Sedona via SR 179. The view of the red rocks is absolutely gorgeous. You can stop at the different trail heads and view the natural beauty of red rock country. Make sure to bring your camera.

Beautiful drive. All of the pull-offs were closed due to flash flooding possibilities. We did find a spot and walked down to the water. The natural slide area was closed due to low creek/river water levels. Found a Native American craft sale at a rest stop....purchased some nice Christmas ornaments.

Great hike. Be sure to buy a Sedona hat from the nice man out front at the entrance! Trails are well marked with signs and stone markers. Hiked to Bell Rock and Courthouse Butte as well as part of the Wilderness...Vortex.
