Oak Creek Canyon is a perfect spot to see beautiful red rocks and foliage. There are many trails ranging from easy to difficult. Most places require good shoes as the walkways are uneven. It gets very crowded on the weekend and parking can be difficult.

Simply beautiful area, with the towering rock wall, extending some 600 ft above the canyon bottom. Tall ponderosa pines and aspens lining the clear creek in the bottom make this a lovely place to hike or camp. Love it.

The drive through Oak Creek Canyon from Sedona to Flagstaff is a MUST for any visitors to the Sedona area. The lush, canyon scenery & numerous easy hiking/walking trails along this 28-mile route make it even more enjoyable. In places, the cliffs of the canyon are right beside the road, and the tall trees (Aspens, Ponderosa pines, etc.) just add... More

Oak Creek Canyon offers one of the most beautiful views of Sedona, Arizona. The drive from Flagstaff to Uptown Sedona is a lovely winding drive through Red Rock views and the canyon below. The road is steep and gets very winding as you climb further down the canyon towards Sedona. In the winter the road and canyon is just gorgeous... More

The drive through Oak Creek Canyon is breathtaking. Explored the pathways and trails to see the local plant and animal life. Can't wait to visit the area again!

The 30 miles or so up 89A from Sedona to Flagstaff has been called one of America's great scenic drives, and it is. Stop at Slide Rock Park for a hike, Junipine Resort for lunch, and the Indian market at the top. Then either head back down (be careful on those switchbacks!) or continue to Flagstaff to shop, eat dinner,... More

This was an AWESOME hike. We started very early before the crowds and heat. It's like another world following the creek with its shady trees abundant flowers and birds. Coming out we encountered lots of people and the typical summer heat. If you enjoy peaceful solitude, then it's worth rising early to get the most out of this hike. Also,... More

The canyon drive from Flagstaff to Sedona (or reverse) is one of the best drives in the area. Starting from Uptown Sedona heading up the canyon toward Flagstaff is a drive you should definitely plan for a weekday. Only because weekend tourist traffic can be quite heavy on the winding, steep accent it can be very slow. The drive is... More

There is a lot to explore here. Slide Rock State Park looks fun-go during the week. It is so beautiful it can't be described. Lots of eye candy.
