Owner description: Breathtaking in its red rock beauty, the Canyon is a spectacular 16-mile gorge with streams and waterfalls between sheer rock walls.

Please be sure to make time in your busy life to experience this breath taking drive. Plan to switch out places so the driver can have a chance to stare slack jawed out the window at the gorgeous rock formations too. If I can only return to one place in my life this would be it.

The drive along 179 between Sedona and Oak Creek is simply spectacular in both directions. While the speed limit is relatively slow (35 miles per hour) and there are any number of intrusive and even challenging rotaries/roundabouts, the views of rock formations are very, very hard to beat! We try to take the roundtrip regularly whenever we're in Sedona.

The stretch of Highway 89A between Sedona and Flagstaff has to be one of the most beautiful one-hour drives in the country; every curve offers one spectacular vista after another. Don't miss it!

My third time to Sedona and each time we drive through Oak Creek -the fall colors are beautiful and the overall scenery is breathtaking - a must do when in Sedona!

The autumn leaves are beautiful and it's a great place to camp and/or explore trails. Several worthwhile visitor centers. Delicious food and outdoor eating area at Indian Gardens Deli.
