Breathtaking in its red rock beauty, the Canyon is a spectacular 16-mile gorge with streams and waterfalls between sheer rock walls.

It is a wonderful drive but be careful. Many hairpin turns and blind turns. It is easier going up than down. We came down in the dark so our experience was more of the thrill ride on the return. If you are going all the...More

There is a parking area with great views and a craft market with Native American hand crafted jewelry and trinkets. Great prices too. Amazing that only 15 miles north of Sedona the scene changes to pine forest and the temp drops about 15 degrees. Check...More

THis is a gorgeous drive. We happened to be there in January and it snowed so we could not complete the drive on this trip. However, we stopped at a cute cafe for cookies and tea. I want to finish the drive on another day.

The drive between Flagstaff/Sedona is not to be missed! Especially on a motorcycle. If you can stay in a place there, all the better. Very peaceful and beautiful.

Despite the present road-works, this is a beautiful ride whether out of Sedona or out of Flagstaff. Take it easy and enjoy the small restaurants along the way.

It's a beautiful ride from Sedona to Flagstaff, BUT it takes much longer than going by I-17. And this is especially true now that there is construction with inevitable delays. Not sure it's any more scenic than the ride from Village of Oak Creek to...More

Unless construction completed I would avoid. Traffic was not the problem. Road was DIRT with huge ruts and holes. Glad we were in a rental car- I was worried about the axle

Yes, there's Slide Rock it has a cost to get to that part of Oak Creek near Sedona. It was made a park. The creek has a lot of camp sites all along it which may have swimming holes if the water has gotten deep enough.
