5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Driving to Sedona from Flagstaff on Rt 89. Stopped along the way to take pictures and view the scenery. Beautiful trees, canyons, red rock. Amazing!

“Best drive ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

If you like vastly varied landscapes, this drive will suit you. From the plains near Flagstaff to the eye-popping canyons near Sedona, you drop about 3000 feet over 10 miles.

“One of the most outstanding scenic opportunities near Sedona”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Oak Creek Canyon offers outstanding scenic opportunities. Towering spires, breathtaking sheer drops, a beautiful babbling rocking creek at the bottom. Not to be missed.

“Not overrated”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We had read a great deal about Oak Creek Canyon before visiting Sedona. I will say that much like the Taj Majal, it DOES live up to its billing. Very beautiful indeed. If you get to Sedona, don't miss Oak Creek Canyon.

“Gateway to beautiful Sedona”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Oak Creek Canyon is one way to get to Sedona from Flagstaff, on a winding but excellent road with a number of great vistas. It may not be the fastest route for sure, but the landscape is well worth it!
