Coming from Phoenix, head North on I-17. Take exit 298 for State Hwy 179. Instead of making a left onto 179 for Sedona, turn right onto what is Forest Rd 618. Just follow the signs and drive about 2 & 1/2 miles and you'll reach...More

Is there a certain time of day that we should try to see this site if we're coming in mid-November? I've read that the light can do some neat things on the walls at certain times of day?

I don't know off hand, but because it is part of the National Parks, hours should be online. One more thing, several pay and no pay National Parks options, so if you have the National Parks pass it will save you money.

Just the Red Rock Pass parking fee. Five dollars a day to park at any Red Rock site. You can buy the pass when you get there or at the Rangers Station
