A do-not-miss drive when you are in Sedona. Excellent red rock views. Plenty of pull-offs and trails. We drove it several times in the week we spent in Sedona.

You will see all of the big rocks. And a beautiful scene on the way into Sedona. If you're coming from the north side, it's an easy and short drive to this area south of Sedona and well worth the round trip.

Mountains are unbelievable! Every corner that you turn there is another picture to be taken! Great sunset views by the airport!

We took a few hours to go the distance; if you like hiking, take even longer. Good signage; beautiful scenery.

Just get in your car, get on your bike, or walk part of this beautiful scenic highway. Around every bend is a sight to behold. Simply said it is breathtaking!

This scenic byway is the most beautiful stretch of roadway I have driven or ridden. If you are anywhere near this area, you should definitely drive this stretch of highway.

We drove the loop coming out of Sedona and the views are simply breath taking. You can see such a vast array of beautiful vistas on this drive. There were many places you could pull over and either hike or just get out your camera...More

Great views along this by way up to Oak Creek Canyon. Look out for the various spots to stop and take pictures of the interesting red mountains!

Awesome place to visit. But some more traffic on weekends. Must visit if you are planning a trip to Sedona.

For sure. It's a well paved highway and very well maintained. Take the roundabouts slow through. They might be a tad tight.
