You can spend as long as you want on this byway. Take it all the way to flagstaff, or turn around when you have had enough. But it is a must see.

Turning off of I-17 onto hwy 179 is like a lot of other exits, but once you hit the Red Rock Scenic Byway, you are in for a real treat. The rock formations are incredible and the numerous trail heads are easily accessible. But remember you have to have a parking pass to access these trails. Well worth the drive and be sure to take in one of the many hikes along the way.

Since the resort is actually in the Village at Oak Creek, we took this drive several times. The upper section is a great drive.

The drive going north from 17 most definitely rivals California PCH scenic drive. Stop by the ranger station to get maps & info. Volunteers are so helpful & courteous. Take your first family photo with the provided tripod. Very easy drive.
