On way to the Grand Canyon from Phoenix swung off and took this ride. If you didn't know better you'd think you were in Maine. Some Indians were selling crafts in one of the turn outs. Cool.

Lots of winding, narrow roads. Wonderful scenery - need to drive it during the daytime. Roads are fairly good. Watch out for pedestrians!

We spent a week around Oak Creek Canyon, hiking, touring, dining, ... There was so much to do that we could have filled another 2 weeks.

The ride to the top of the canyon is neat. There's a huge parking and viewing area at the top of the canyon. Well worth a short visit

It is the same road outside Flagstaff you will not be disappointed if you like scenic panoramas on almost every turn. The drive starts out in higher elevations all the way through pines to deciduous trees and then finally... More

November is a great time to visit the Sedona, Flagstaff, Grant Canyon South Rim area. Be prepared for freezing (literally) nights but nice days that range from mid-50's to 70. Sedona actually has a bit of a micro-climate... More

Unless construction completed I would avoid. Traffic was not the problem. Road was DIRT with huge ruts and holes. Glad we were in a rental car- I was worried about the axle
