When we got to Sedona, it was unbearably hot and we just couldn't make ourselves go for a hike, so we drove the Oak Creek Canyon. The trees provide lots of shade and there are good spots for picnic, walking and reading. There is a creek that runs through it, which provides soothing, bubbling water sounds. It was just what...

Don't drive if you are in a hurry. It has many sharp turns and has a far amount of traffic. Much coming in the other direction, including trucks. Not fun at night.

This was an unexpected surprise for us. The canyon had campgrounds and some small shops along the way, It was a beautiful drive that went up the hill on a very curvy road.

Drove down 89a from Flagstaff lots of great views, scenic stops. The bridge was my favorite for sure. Venture out along the paths a lot of awesome surprises!

This is a nice gentle walk with lots of shade also great to bring a lunch and stop to eat. Good for all ages and kids. Nice walk on a hot day to keep cool.

Husband and I were travelling from Flagstaff down to Sedona and passed through this gem. One of the more beautiful drives that we partook in. Absolutely loved this relaxing drive. However, it is quite twisty and if you want to go toSliding Rock, it's roughly $20, but there are more trails.

Traffic was light, and the scenery was wonderful. The park at the top of the road offers great views, and affords a breather after the hairpin turns it takes to get there. Great drive!

Unfortunately the drive from Flagstaff to Sedona along this road was not as good as expected as it was pouring with rain, but I have been here before & know that it is a beautiful drive.

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
