I knew from my research that Oak Creek Canyon would be one of my favorite hikes while in the Sedona area, so decided to save it for one of the last days there. I was not disappointed. I did the West Creek Trail. The weather...More

This is a beautiful drive through the canyon with hairpin turns leading up to Flagstaff. There are a number of trails, a state park and services available. It is a relatively short drive and try to return the opposite direction for full effect.

We drove the Oak Creek Canyon road a number of times during our visit to Sedona and were charmed each time. Splendid views of the forest and to bubbling Oak Creek Were charming. Stopped at some of the venues along the way. Charming & beautiful!

Oak Creek canyon is a beautiful canyon that can be enjoyed by car or hiking. Upper canyon is forested with Ponderosa Pines and as you drive south the scenery changes to Juniper and Pinon pines. Just to let everyone know that a massive re-construction project...More

Wether your first time to Sedona or 100th, the drive up the Oak Creek Canyon is well worth it. Depending on traffic it takes about 20 minutes to drive from Uptown Sedona to the top of the Switch backs at the top of the mountain....More

After two successful rock crossings we decided to quit while we were ahead (we are not in a young and spry demographic), so we did not get to the end of the trail. But it was beautiful, and worth the sort of surprising $10 fee...More

We were on an 8 day tour of the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Lake Powell, Bryce & Zion and Sedona was one of our first stops. It was a wonderful beginning of the gorgeous sights ahead of us on this trip.

I'm sure I am not adding anything by saying this is a beautiful drive out of Sedona. I will note that in busier times of the year, the wait to get back into Sedona on 89A can be an hour or more, so I would...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.
