After several days in Sedona proper, we drove north to have lunch. We are GLAD we did - I had no idea how scenic the drive up through the canyon would be. We stopped off at the bridge and there is a nice little trail to walk down and get pictures. Highly recommend making this drive - even if it... More

This should be a must-do-drive for anyone driving Phoenix to Flagstaff and beyond. You drive north on I-17 to the Sedona turn-off (about mile marker 299). About 12 miles north you get to old town Sedona which could keep you window shopping for hours. From there on its just scenic roadway. The leaves are already slightly changing to gold and... More

This drive was incredible with hairpin turns, and new surprise "ooh....,ahh" views with almost every turn. Allow plenty of time for pulling off and enjoying the nature. The traffic can get heavy with a single lane going each direction and sometimes long stretches without passing zones so some drivers may get aggressive if they're not as mesmerized as you. We...

We drove into Sedona via Oak Creek Canyon. There are very nice forest views and with it being the first day of fall, some early fall views. The rock views were nice too. Its a nice drive to Sedona. There are various parks, places to stop, and lodging along the way. We drove it on a slightly rainy day.

The variation between the low lying creek and the majestic mountains and red rocks make the drive through this canyon a picture postcard. There are hiking trails, picnic spots, as well as cabins.

Great scenic view. Those pine trees and coolness of temps made me forget that I was in a desert. I did browse through what the Navajo were selling. Honestly, most of their items were exactly the same. Nothing was different. But this place is a definite place to stop if you need a break from the desert sun.
