“Red Rock Views”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

This scenic byway is perfect for everyone to be able to visit most of the well known sites in Sedona, such as Bell Rock, Courthouse Rock and several others. Experiencing these beautiful Red Rocks are easily accessible from parking lots along SR 179. There are various pull-outs along the highway where you can stop or continue into the parking lot. There is no room to stop along the roads for photos. From these parking lots, you can experience the views and no hiking or walking is necessary for those who are unable. There are rest rooms at the parking lots & picnic tables. Beware, however, that you must pay for parking at these pull-outs. You can buy passes, inexpensive, in town or you can use a National Park's Lifetime Pass. Be sure to read about parking & what type of pass you will need.

This is a great drive with amazing views. We went about a hour before sunset and the rocks were just amazing. Take your time and just enjoy this drive.

“Endless Views”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

This highway into Sedona is lined with amazing red rock formations and incredible views. There are many scenic viewpoints where travelers can get off the highway and park to take in the scenery.

DO NOT stop along the roadway or in the bike lanes!

“Views of a Lifetime”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

It's a two lane highway, and if you're in a relaxed mood to just sit back and enjoy the views, you will be rewarded with the little town and the Belle of the Ball, Bell Rock, as it breaks into view in the Village of Oak Creek.
