The ride through the mountains resembles a roller coaster ride. There is a scenic overlook off the road to stop at. They have restrooms and many tables of handmade Indian items. This is a great little stop.

This is the type of drive you would love to keep a secret. Drive slow and enjoy the scenery. There are plenty of accommodations throughout the drive including resorts and primitive camping. Downtown Sedona is a short drive away for shopping, food, and a cool...More

Don't go from Flagstaff to Sedona or vice versa without taking this route - you don't know where to look there are so many breathtaking views. Only sad part is everyone seems to be in a hurry so sometimes you feel rushed, but ignore them...More

What a scenic drive! We recommend pulling into each picnic spot and taking a few minutes to relax and enjoy the views The Native American crafts at the overlook at the northern end of the canyon was a special way to end the drive

We've driven the route many times but have not been there in years. This time, we noticed that vegetation and buildings have really started to obscure what used to be lovely creek views. The road is still fun and has a lot of surprises.

Seems like every time we come here there is construction on some part of this two-lane highway that causes a backup for Miles
