Very picturesque area with some great photo opportunities. The landscape is full of awesome sights with stop after stop of great views. The land formations and colors are magnificent! We drove up from Scottsdale to Sedona to see it and are very glad we did!

My wife and I spent an afternoon traveling the byway and stopping at the scenic spots to enjoy the beautiful Southwestern vistas. We'll worth your time. We highly recommend this for those that love Arizona beauty.

Great drive to see redrocks. We stopped at every pull over to look around and take pictures. The sky is so blue, great backdrop to the redrocks.

Be sure to take to the scenic highway. There are places to pull off and take pictures. The red rocks are colorful and make great photos!

Well worth the drive! Beautiful scenery and much cooler temperatures than we found in Scottsdale. Lots of opportunities for pictures, lunch and shopping.

This is such an incredible part of the USA. What better way to see it than the Red Rock Scenic Byway. Touted by some as "the most dramatic 15 miles in the country"

My husband and I were leaving Sedona, but took this route to head towards Phoenix. The drive was just breath taking, so worth the drive!
