“Never enough!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

We have been to Arizona so many times and visit Sedona via this road every time. We talked about skipping it this visit, but, at the last minute, decided we would be sorry if we didn't go. And, with a small bit of fresh snow nestled in among the pines against the red rocks, it was like seeing it for the first time!

When Bell Rock first comes into view, even a "regular" can't help but be amazed. I always find myself on the verge of tears in Sedona. The sheer beauty of it all is overwhelming!

Then, after you've driven SR 179, turn around and come back at it from the other direction. It's a whole new look!

“Excellent road to Sedona from Phoenix”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

An incredibly scenic road approaching Sedona. You can not only see Bell Rock but also Courthouse Butte and Cathedral Rock. Lots of places to park in scenic turn-offs and also can take hikes.

“Excellent views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

The views are awesome, but the people in Arizona drive so slow and pay no attention to the traffic, so please drive carefully.

“This is the most photographed spot.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

They charge to day park and don't take credit. A nice walk (short) to one of the most beautiful views on this planet. It is a must do.
