“Great drive”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Lots of others taking in the great Sedona Sites, stay aware, people sometimes come over the lines. One thing to consider, take this drive at night and pull off the road, you can see the Milky Way. There is little light pollution in Sedona.

“Good views of Red Rock country”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

There are many fabulous views along this route. My Canon EOS DSLR thanked me with great shots! The turn-offs along this route are safe and clean. Patience may yield some wildlife shots.

“Fantastic views”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

A quick intriguing look at the red rocks. Just be careful of the parking areas as they are low and it's easy to bottom out.

“You can't miss it and you absolutely shouldn't miss it!”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

This stretch of road the the various formations associated with it are absolutely stunning. The only drawback is that there just aren't enough places (although there are many) where you can pull off and marvel.

“Loved it”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

So beautiful, also many easy spots to stop for picture taking, one stop had restrooms and a tripod set up for free use in order to get pics of yourself with rocks in background
