Schnebly Hill Road

I know this is an unpaved road, where rental vehicles will not be allowed. But, if I were to rent a wrangler from one of the local outfitters (hoping I can find one) I have a question about the road.

Is this road on a steep cliff without guard rails? The satellite map seems to show a flat area, but I can't tell for sure.

A locally rentedJeep Wrangler should have little trouble with SHR. Right now, and until after the spring thaw, the road is closed beyond the 5 mile post. The road does climb. There are no guard rails. And there are drop offs. But I'm not aware of any vehicles falling off since the beer truck about a decade ago.

There have been more accidents and roll overs down on 89A in Oak Creek Canyon where the road is paved, but careless people drive at higher speeds.

No, there are steep switchbacks as it descends the rim and then a steady downhill into Oak Creek Canyon. There are no guardrails. Here's a link to the Google Terrain view, which shows you what it's actually like: https://maps.google.com/maps?q=sedona,+az&ll=34.876073,-111.703405&spn=0.042812,0.090895&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-a&hnear=Sedona,+Coconino,+Arizona&gl=us&t=p&z=14
