  • Liked the story of how Sedona got it's name from the Mr. Schnebly naming the town after his wife Sedona.  more »
  • 4X4 vehicles only on this stretch of area just slightly north of Sedona. There is a parking lot and hiking trails before the road turns into 4x4 access, but the best views are from the road. Jeeps.....  more »

  • Sunset at the overlook is spectacular. This road does need a high clearance vehicle and 4 wheel drive. It is a very rough ride. Be prepared.
  • Absolutely awe inspiring and truly unique experience. Be warned however, the last 20% of this trail ( going from flag to Sedona route) is BRUTAL. Extremely rocky, high clearance required. This not something that you can take most vehicles on without risk of damage.
