This felt like we were driving through the Grand Canyon! The added hour to take this route between Vegas and Phoenix was well worth it! Not for someone with a fear of heights as you will be driving cliff side. One of the nicest scenic...More

A great slow drive through the canyon. Stop and check out the vista point for sure! An easy drive with great views.

Do your homework before venturing into this area as each hike has its own degree of effort- or go for it and try them all ( just bring plenty of water year round)

Can’t wait for driverless cars that will permit me to see more of the scenery; wife insisted it was gorgeous the entire way.

Based on several other TripAdvisor postings, decided to make the trip along river gorge, route 89A. Very scenic and worth the time---be sure to stop at overlook/vista.

Absolutely gorgeous. Kids may struggle getting across the water crossings, but it's not deep, so have them wear water shoes so they can splash around. Dogs love it too! Such a beautiful place. This is a must-do for Sedona

We came early in the season and had to turn back as the river crossings were knee high. We found another great hike but the map didn't indicate that there were no bridges.

Never been to the Grand Canyon, or Sedona for that matter. After leaving Sedona, we drove thru Oak Creek Canyon toward Flagstaff. What a beautiful drive. Hopefully, we'll go back to the Grand Canyon soon, and I'll be sure to take that route as an...More

We went through the canyon on the way to Flagstaff and on to the Grand Canyon after visiting Sedona. We only stopped at the top of the escarpment for the lookouts and brief shopping with the native handcrafts. Along the bottom of the canyon are...More

This would be a lovely drive, but few places would be wheelchair accessible. I would recommend stopping at the Junipine Lodge for lunch. The food is wonderful and I think I recall that they have a wheelchair ramp.
