We have driven 4x4 roads in Colorado and Arizona. This road up from Sedona is the roughest I've been on. Our guidebook rated it "easy," but can't quite figure out why. Perhaps because of the many places one can pull over for views, turning around, allowing others to pass. It is a wide road in most places but incredibly large... More

Lovely sweeping views of Sedona and over the Oak Creek Canyon and Mingus Bridge, if you venture far enough. Access by foot, bike, horse or... Pink Jeeps! I, personally, use it as the training grounds for my trail runs. Some 2.6 mile into the road, you get access to the Cow Pies and Hangover trails - both fun-tastic!

love going up and parking in the lot close to the cow pies.. my favorite vortex, even though it is not listed as one. You can hike up to it and it is a lovely hike..

To reach Schnebly Hill Vista you have to drive Schnebly Hill Road and that road is not fit to drive on with a high clearance Jeep. It takes forever and its like driving on an endless obstacle course filled with boulders, large sharp rocks and deep ruts.

This in one of the best views of Sedona. If you choose to hike you'll have a 3-1/2 mile uphill hike listed as "hard" in several books. The road up is about 5-1/2 miles from Highway 179 and has gotten very torn up. In fact, we would recommend 4WD these days. We used to drive up easily, but no longer.... More

We were in a rental Jeep, but BEWARE once the pavement ends after 1 mile, road has huge potholes that could ruin your car or low SUV.

Schnebly Hill is a short easy drive off Rte179. It deadends to a parking area that leads to walking areas from which numerous photo opportunities exist.

Schnebly Hill provides gresat views of the red hills and the town of Sedona.Schnebbly Hill Road is over the creek after Tlaquepaque and up the hill to the left. Watch out that the paved area moves to a very rough road.

The paved road only goes up about a mile then you must have a 4x4 clearance vehicle to go farther. There is a turnoff where a few trail heads originate plus a place to picnic. The views are gorgeous. We saw quite a few people mountain biking. We did not go farther.
