If your driving that road from Sedona you must use a 4x4, by the time you arrive and dislodge your kidney from your throat you will be rewarded with an amazing view, Slow and very bumpy, some shear drops, the only bummer is all the damn tourist jeeps. You can approach it from the top via I17 at Schenbly Rd. exit. A much easier and accessible trip.

Schnebley Hill is named for Sedona Schnebley who Sedona is named after. The road connects Sedona to 1-17. While this review is (primarily) about the vista) I highly recommend taking the full tour of the road. Start at I-17, Schnebley Hill Road. You begin with beautiful national forest, high desert grassland, and quiet ranches, then you approach the red rocks, and the road gets QUITE rough (HIGH CLEARANCE) but the views get more and more spectacular. The high pines, high desert grasslands, then the red rocks, makes this an unforgettable trip.
Again high clearance is a must, this is not a trip for someone who cannot take bumpy roads.

Drove the very rough Schnebly Hill road(unimproved and rocky) about five miles to the overlook. The view from there, overlooking Sedona is unimaginable. Be advised you will need a high ground clearance vehicle, such as a pickup or a Jeep/Toyota off road. Not a good idea to take a rental car up there.:-)

This is a very popular morning drive for the Pink Jeep crowd, and rightly so, for the views of downtown Sedona are perfectly lit for great photos. This is also the parking lot for several trails. Marg's Draw is a mellow morning hike that provides a scenic and tranquil experience away from the maddening crowd. Get out of you car and take a walk!

This is the land of over the top vistas. I can’t say enough of how spectacular they are. Each one more amazing than the last if that’s possible. This hill gives you a broad perspective of how vast the area is and the family name is linked to founders of Sedona. Give it a go!

Superb hiking area. Drive up Schnebly as far as you're comfortable. Park and hike. Take the trail to cow pies, and then continue up and around the top of the red rock. Stunning views in every direction. Cow pies isn't a vortex. The total hike is 7 miles. It's special. The road is driveable year round, but is dirt and bumpy. No restroom facility on hike.

Absolutely phenomenal views that words and even photos could never properly capture. We rented a Jeep at MYE (see review) and drove up the rock slide they call Schnebly Hill Road. This wasn’t our first off-road rodeo, but it was the first off-road that really felt like a rodeo. The trip up was arduous and, at times, treacherous. Don’t look over the edge if you’re driving – believe me, stop first. At the top we met a couple of local guys who drove up in a two-seat desert ATV with a roll cage, which BTW is a must better way to go than a Jeep on many Sedona trails. They noticed my white knuckles and told us about a much easier way up and down. Instead of heading West back into Sedona, we went East toward I-17. That road was relatively smooth but you still needed a 4x4 in places. It went through a forest, passed cattle ranches (complete with cattle roaming the road) and came out at Exit 320 on I-17. It was a bit of a hike back to Oak Creek where we had rented the Jeep, but we arrived with all our fillings still in place.

Take in the views and the history of Schnebly Hill from the back of one of the many Jeep rides available. I encourage as close to sunset as possible. The light and shadow enhances the beauty. As you bounce up the hill in a Jeep, think of the early cattle drives up the hill for summer pasture and back down for winter cover, close to 1500 feet change in elevation.

You can see amazing views from this vista. We took a jeep ride up. The road is very difficult to maneuver without a proper vehicle.
