I suppose you could take this trip in a car, but I don't recommend it. A vehicle with higher clearance would be better. We went from the bottom up, but I think going from the top down would be better because the spectacular views are in front of you that way. This is the original road into the canyon and was the only way to get to Sedona from Flagstaff until 89A was built. As you're complaining about the bumpy ride as you descend into the canyon in your leather-upholstered, air-conditioned, GPS and satellite radio equipped Escalade, imagine what it was like to hook your horses to your wagon, take that road to Flagstaff for supplies, and then come back down the same way. Rough.

We took the Safari Jeep Tour up to the Mongollon Rim, and the way up is on Schnebly Hill Road.You truly need a off road vehicle. It is a very bumpy ride( rough most of the time!!!) Saw some very nice suv's driving up,and a few cars and i would never take my suv up that road!!!! Beautiful views of the red rocks all the way up!!!!!

We took this road from I17, thinking it would lead us quickly to Sedona. We didn't heed the sign that said 4x4 vehicle recommended-how bad could it be? The beginning was not too bad, the viewpoint was beautiful. We should have turned our Malibu around at that point, but why with only about 4 miles left? It took us over an hour to get back onto pavement! Crazy potholes and washed out areas. Not the best for our rental car but we would go back in a heartbeat with a jeep.

This is one rough road, 4x4 only. Go slow took us over two hours. Came down from I-17 to Sedona. Great hiking and picture taking. We stopped a few times to take it all in and to let the dog out.. There is also one great mountain biking or hiking trail that runs beside the road. Keep a look out for the Pink Jeeps there everywhere. And when your all done in Sedona take Oak Creek canyon back to Flagstaff you will love it!
