“How Can You Resist?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Most Sedona visitors will at one point or another head down 179 just out of necessity (coming or going from the Phoenix Airport, or staying in The Village of Oak Creek, for instance). It's hard not to notice the natural beauty of the rocks rising up...and the best part is you may see an entirely new view depending upon the angle of site, the time of day, and the weather. This view is one of the things that makes Sedona so special. Enjoy it, don't just drive by!

“A MUST”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

coming north on SR 179 and stopping at the ranger station to get our first ever view of Red Rock Country was astounding. Take it slow and enjoy the views.

“You must do this drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

This is such a fun and scenic drive. It's not all that long, so take your time, stop at the turnouts, and enjoy. There's tons of interesting stops and you can spend a couple of hours or a couple of days, depending on how often you want to hike or watch birds, or take photos, or picnic or whatever... You'll have a terrific time, guaranteed!

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

MUST see. Unique rock formations, beautiful area. There is reason it is referred to as a 'scenic byway'... Is an easy drive, not scary (for those of you who hate mountain type driving).
