One of the most photogenic drives I've ever been on! Every turnout, every curve yields another awe-inspiring view.

Drive up and down the canyon to see it from both ends. Any season is a good time to explore the canyon and it's creek and hiking trails. Picnic areas, Inn's and B&B'S, enjoy the area.

Driving through Oak Creek Canyon is a "don't miss" when we visit Sedona. It is beautiful! The curves are tricky, so it is important to follow the speed limits. If you do, you'll be fine.

November is a great time to visit the Sedona, Flagstaff, Grant Canyon South Rim area. Be prepared for freezing (literally) nights but nice days that range from mid-50's to 70. Sedona actually has a bit of a micro-climate... 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.
