Drive up and down this road and prepare to stop often for photo ops. You will see something different and interesting with each trip. God's finest masterpieces stand out boldly here.

“Amazing drive”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

Just drive through this stretch of highway for one of the most unbelievable sites you'll ever see. Pull over at the scenic stops but really no need.

“So nice, had to do it again”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

The Concierge at the Sedona Real Inn recommended doing the route, turning around and coming back. You really do see it differently. Well I just had to do the return trip once more after that too!

“Breathtaking Drive”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

This is a short drive, but one that is very memorable. You will get many photos of beautiful rock formations in the Sedona area.

“Spectacular views”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

This road trip rivals the Grand Canyon because you get up close to the rock formations. The view feels almost like a 3D movie. Lots of trailheads to stop and go hike for an even closer view. Be sure purchase the parking pass Red Rock for $5 a day or $15 for a week. That way you wont risk a fine.
