Drive up Arizona Highway 89A from Sedona to Flagstaff and you will see red rock formations up close which then become mountains with sheer cliffs and pine forests. You will arrive in the mountain city of Flagstaff, home to Northern Arizona University, a small town...More

I grew up in Colorado. I am used to winding roads. However, I didn't expect this beautiful canyon drive going into Sedona, Arizona. It was so amazing. Road is well kept.

First of all, Arizona 89A is really divided into two sections- Prescott to Sedona which is what this review is intended for, and then Sedona- Flagstaff. That section follows Oak Creek Canyon and is covered under that listing, although many people have included it here...More

We took the AZ route 89A up to the Canyon. This oak Creek Canyon Drive is one of the top 5 mist scenic drives in the United States of America. We enjoyed the hairpin turns and the scenic vistas and beautiful views.

Drove from Cottonwood to Prescott through Jerome. The road is twisty and winding and not much fun for the driver.

crazy hairpin turns and views that are breathtaking. Go all the way to the top and you can park at the scenic view spot and walk around. They have spots to take great pictures. Lots of fun.

Yes, this road is a state highway that is paved the entire length. It is a smooth drive and completely safe for all vehicles. Only on a few occasions, when there has been a heavy snowfall during winter, is this road closed... More
