This is the most lovely and romantic short drive ever! I wish we had more time to stop and eat or hike. There are multiple places, but drive slowly or you will miss them. There are picnic spots and small waterfalls. The temperature drops at...More

Don't miss this side trip off the highway. It takes a bit longer but it is so well worth it. Gorgeous views, comes right into the red rocks of Sedona.

Didn't do this drive last time here. This is a must do while in Sedona. Takes patience the traffic was slow with people on your bumper at times trying to push you along. The views along the way stunning. Not sure if we missed something...More

All of the sights we saw in Sedona are extraordinary. The red rock formations rise from the ground and are exceptionally beautiful. We didn’t do much hiking, but there is plenty to see and many opportunities to view the sights from ones car or by...More

The drive up or down the canyon is breathtaking. Take the ride slowly and enjoy it. Pull off every once in a while to just savor the view

This is one of the most scenic drives in the country. It is well worth the drive and pull off to capture the beauty of this area. Don't forget to stop at Slide Rock!!

There are several places where you take a hike along this canyon. Some are very long as in a couple miles over rough terrain so de prepared. The fact that you can be around 5,000 feet also adds to the breathing effort if you are...More

Many canyon drives top this one. It is average pretty and the drive is not difficult. Traffic isn’t too bad but if you have been to others elsewhere this one can be missed. Other ways to get to Sedona so this is not necessary.

Breathtaking journey to and from Sedona from Flagstaff. Wish there had been more easy, safe places to pull off to take pictures. It can be done, but it takes driving slower and looking for opportunities to pull off.

Beautiful deep canyon with a curvy fun road to drive. Not many places to stop and look but the Canyon Vista is worth the stop. There were Navajo Indians selling their crafts and the beauty and craftsmanship were spectacular. Sedona was very crowded on this...More
