The road from Flagsatff to Sedona is gorgeous feast for the eyes. The geology alone is a stunner. It is a good road, however it is a winding road.It follows a river, so you can count on many curves. If you catch it on a holiday or other high traffic day, as we did, there is a good deal of... More

We drove this route en route to Flagstaff from Sedona. A beautiful drive, with stunning scenery even in the rain.

This drive is very safe with all kinds of views and areas to pull over and take pictures. There was very little traffic so I was able to slow down and just enjoy the area. It is part of your trip into walnut canyon, which is a great experience.

Great place to visit all year round. Bring your mountain bike and ride around the rim. The rangers are very knowledgeable and engaging.

The drive into Walnut Canyon is very unremarkable. The ruins there are wonderful, although not at all colorful and unfortunately not easy to access unless you have excellent physical and aerobic fitness. If you cannot hike up and down many many stairs I would skip this attraction and save the admission fee. You can see one of the ruins from... More

Went from Flagstaff to Sedona on this road. It is very scenic and well worth the time. Road is curvy so take your time and enjoy the scenery. When you get to Sedona, you have more treats in store

This national monument is worth the stop. In the Summer bring plenty of water and good walking shoes any time of year.

Walnut Canyon is well worth the time and effort! Great hike on parved trails. Everything is very well marked and in remarkably good shape, well preserved. There is a very nice gift shop and there's lots of information on the site.

This is a nice little drive, coming from or going to. downtown Sedona. People live along this route and I was thinking "Wow!, what a place to live- you could WALK to Walnut Canyon every day.

Great National Park. So glad the effort was made to preserve Native American history. This park was enjoyed by our kids & 4 y/o granddaughter who was inspired to create her own mini version of Indian ruins with rocks, sand, pine cones, etc.

Thank Debbie S
