    Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon Professional Guide

    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "This is one of the most popular day trips for visitors and residents alike. Desert dwellers love the lush green of Oak Creek Canyon, and one never tires of the Red Rocks or the startling view as the highway plunges into the heart of this magnificent country. The trip is an easy, nonstop, two-hour drive from Phoenix. Along the way, you get a full dose of Sedona’s famous Red Rocks, one of the reasons for the town’s popularity. Although recently humans have made their mark here with condominiums, shopping centers, and elegant homes, the Red Rocks still dominate the landscape.

    At an elevation of 4,300 feet, Sedona’s weather is usually delightful. Although snow occasionally falls in winter and summer temperatures can peak from warm to hot, the climate generally is ideal. You can easily spend a day (not to mention money) exploring indoors as Sedona offers a full complement of culture and recreation. Outdoor enthusiasts will find plenty to do as well. This chapter from the DayTrips series describes many fascinating, exciting, (and many free of charge) things to do, most within a two-hour drive of Phoenix. Each Day Trip includes destination highlights, places to visit along the way, choice restaurants and lodging, and shopping."

    Sedona, AZ is one of the most beautiful spots in the U.S. The drive along Oak Creek Canyon has some stunning views of the red rock cliffs but also some quieter spots along the way where you can stop and have a picnic in foresty areas. You can even find some areas to take a dip in the creek, most of which aren't marked but just keep your eye out as you drive along and you'll see them. Apparently great fishing spots as well. All were dog approved. ;)

    Sedona to Flagstaff through Oak Creek Canyon is one of the prettiest anywhere is the USA. First the huge red rocks of Sedona are a 360 degree postcard in itself. Then when you enter the Oak Creek area it was a beautiful fall foliage forest drive. The road winds back and forth with various pull off viewing and picture points. Also, we saw many mule deer, in fact be vary careful not to hit them with your vehicle, they are very large and the road is very curvy. if you are in the area, this a worthwhile drive to take for the day.
