Guided ATV Tour of Western Sedona

527 reviews
Experience the desert terrain of western Sedona with the thrill of a half-day ATV tour. Ride along rugged dirt trails surrounded by steep canyon walls, red-rock bluffs, and brush, stopping at lookouts and other remote locations far from the crowds. Your guide leads you to the top of Skeleton Bone Mountain, and points out movie filming locations along the way.

We drove from Goodyear, Arizona to Sedona via this route. The sun was shining and the red rocks glistened in the light. With the cactus, beautiful rocks and wide open spaces this path is a must see!! Byway is path off the beaten path and it sure lived up to the definition. Very easy to drive, just beautiful sites to enjoy from every vantage point. Plenty of pull offs so you can gaze at the world around you.

You cannot come to Sedona without taking SR 179 Red Rock Scenic Byway! You’ll hear about 89A, but don’t get on that road until you get to Sedona north on to Flagstaff. The Byway contains such beauties as Courthouse Butte, Bell Rock, Little Horse and the Chapel of the Holy Cross. There are stops along the way with parking lots and easy trails to hike to get a closer look. You can get a day pass for all the lots for only $5 at a parking machine at most of the lots making it an inexpensive, but most beautiful day ever. Don’t forget to bring water!

On our recent trip to Arizona, we took the Scenic Byway to Sedona. The views are breathtaking and the scenery is gorgeous along this well- maintained road. Lots of pull offs with, somewhat, limited parking. As usual, I wish we would have had more time. It is a beautiful area.

The views along this highway are beautiful, and the light and sky are always changing, creating new vistas. the only challenge is The interchange between the highways in the middle of Sedona can get very backed up in both directions so time your trip accordingly.
