We drove down the highway and then back up (toward Flagstaff); the beauty is not adequately described. The weather was sunny in one direction and overcast with rain the other direction - still beautiful both times. It is worth the few extra minutes to travel this canyon - looking at the rock formations, the creek and water, as well as... More

Took the trip through the canyon this am and the views were stunning. Be forewarned the curves and mile high climb do not lend to sightseeing. Reminded me of the Dragon's Tail in North Carolina through the Smokies but so much more scenic.

Great for hikes, picnics with family & friends. Beautiful in the fall. Positive energy all over Sedona is very inviting for repeat visits. Very pretty drive as well.

I drove this route during sunset on the way to Flagstaff then again on my return to Phoenix on a hot Sunday afternoon. I enjoyed the tree lined drive long the river and canyon that broke the heat of the hot desert sun. The shade and greenery was welcome! We stopped at the Indian Gardens cafe and also at a... More

The area has a beautiful creek (maybe it's big enough to be a river) and winding roads with beautiful vistas. Well worth the drive.

Lovely views on this curvy, climbing drive. Glad we drove through in daylight before coming back through at night so we knew what to expect. Sedona and surrounding areas are pleasantly incredibly dark so made the night drive a little eerie. Saw javelina and deer on the road at night...it pays to drive slowly.

Sedona is a beautiful place and driving out, heading to the Grand Canyon we drove 89A. I am usually a "let's get there" kind of guy, but on this route I stopped at least five times just to take in the beauty. I will always cherish the views and the memories of God's beauty!

We hiked this trail based off of the good reviews. I'm sure it is beautiful in the spring, summer, and fall, but in the winter everything is dead and barren! The creek was running, but it didn't make the hike worth it. Not steep at all, so it would be an easy hike for kids too. I rated average because... More

Location great both for hiking and proximity to downtown/uptown Sedona. Restaurants within walking distance from hotels/condos. Would stay there again when visiting Sedona.
