Another "do not miss this" when visiting Sedona. The drive from Sedona to the View Point at the top is said to be one of the top ten scenic drives in the USA. There are two gorgeous stops on the way should you wish to visit them. One is Slide Rock State Park and the other is Westfork. When you get the twenty five miles up to the View Point , take time to visit the Native American stalls. This is a no fee parking area and restroom facilities are available. The drive goes from an elevation of 4500 feet in Sedona to almost 7000 feet. The drive back down the canyon is more spectacular the drive up.

We have done the drive from Flagstaff to Sedona several times and this is one of the top drives in the US - if you get a chance to take the drive, highly recommended.

Drove up the Oak Creek Canyon on our way to the Grand Canyon. It was early morning and the scenery was just amazing. I is a lovely relaxing drive. Next time we would like to explore some of the parks in that area.

Hwy 89A through Oak Creek Canyon is a twisting, 2-lane road that goes for 28 miles all the way to Flagstaff. The views are amazing and there are many places to stop to enjoy it all. Use caution when driving on this narrow road and take time to pull over to enjoy it. It can get quite backed up with traffic on weekends.

This is an excellent hike with lots of beauty, varied terrain and a mix of sunshine and shaded areas. No wonder it's in the top ten list of hikes in Sedona!
