This is a beautiful Byway. We had the pleasure of driving it many times as our resort (The Bell Rock Inn) was on SR-179. The Red Rock formations are just an awesome sight. If visit Sedona and get a change to drive the Red Rock...More

Drove through here when traveling through Sedona. What a view! Every direction you turn, you will have beautiful views of the Red Rocks. Take the time to enjoy the drive and get out to do some hiking & take pictures. Sedona is so beautiful!

This was such a beautiful drive! My husband and I rode through this during our first night in Sedona. It is a super easy drive, and it is SO worth the views. Absolutely stunning.

The drive into Sedona is full of views of both close and distant mountains. There are several scenic pull-offs along the way for pictures or short hikes.

We were able to drive this daily back and forth to our condo. At different parts of the day the sun would shine differently on the red rocks (mountains) - it was just beautiful. Put this in your schedule!

Exceptional for hiking, climbing or biking. Some good off road trails as well for OTV. Driving in from Phoenix is simpler coming up thru Cottonwood. Two lane road otherwise gets a bit crowdes.

In The center of Sedona is a Y intersection of 89A and 179. What helped us the most was a $4 placemat/mao we bought at the Coffee Pot restaurant. Its easy to read and has pictures of all the main sites. Great souvenir too!

You don't have to wait until sunset to enjoy the views, but it is very pretty around sunset. It is a tranquil drive no matter the time of day. If youre staying in the area for an overnight, and your schedule allows, drive... More
