We traveled many dirt/unmaintained roads during our visit to Sedona, so we thought we'd try this one. It was rough, rocky, rutted and required good observation and planning of the route to take for a VERY slow ride. Beautiful vistas but we gave up after turning the big corner. We were driving our own Jeep Cherokee and it didn't seem... More

Went on this road for the second time. Don't remember the first time being so rough. Totally worth it though.Quiet, breathtaking views you won't see from town. Caution--we had a 4 WD rental SUV and we didn't make it to the Vista this time. Wouldn't recommend in a regular car.

As a local, we made the mistake of taking our 4W up this raod, and regreted it. The PERFECT way to see the views and enjoy the dive is to take a jeep tour that is equiped for the' bouldering' this raod requires. Stunning vistas, and at the top check out the rare Aligator Juniper Trees.

My sister & I took a jeep tour after a generous rainfall the night before. The road wasn't dusty, but the rocks & ruts were more pronounced. Our guide advised us to go with the pronounced twists, turns, & bumps; Stay Relaxed he shouted! Well worth the drive, our guide was knowledgeable, good sense of humor. Unbelievable formations & colors.... More

The Forest Service in its policy of keeping the wilderness off limits to ordinary people no longer maintains this road having basically assigned it to the commercial Jeep tour companies. Even high clearance vehicles will face some challenges.

Have taken this road many times in the past via 4WD rental vehicle. This time was solo so I opted for the Pink Jeep Scenic Rim tour. Glad I didn't try to do it on my own. Road seemed very much deteriorated since last trip. However, our tour guide Patty was great and it's still one of the prettiest drives... More

There is no shortage of scenic rides/trails around Sedona. The Schnebly Hill Road is 1 such adventure. Colorful terrain, twists and turns of the highway. The tressel bridge is a place to stop for pictures of the bridge and the ravine. A stop here is also great place to begin a hike; short or long. Camp sites are available all... More

Took this rode from I-17 over to Sedona thinking I was taking a shortcut, because after all, it was listed on the map, so I thought it must be a decent road. Ha, it was the worst road I have ever driven on with a regular car. We literally had to get out of the car numerous times in order... More

We went up this road and stopped at a trail head near the end (where the road is available only to jeeps, etc.) Took lots of pictures near sunset. Spectacular!

We took a 3 hour jeep tour up this incredibly rocky road and the scenery was awesome! You get bounced around a LOT in the jeep but it's worth it.
