Gorgeous backcountry descent to beautiful Sedona Towering red rock buttes set against a backdrop of deep-green forest and clear blue sky make this road one of Arizona's most photogenic. The road descends over 2,200 feet from the top of massive Mogollon Rim to the town of Sedona. Memorable hiking trails depart from several places along the road, and dispersed camping is allowed above Vista Point. The drive is impressive in either direction. Elk may be seen before sunset. Mountain bikers looking for an easy day will enjoy the ride down. If you park, hike, or stop along the route, you'll need a Red Rocks Pass. Located in Coconino National Forest. For current conditions call Red Rock Ranger District (928) 203-2900. Easy. Signs recommend only trucks or off-highway vehicles, but cars (not low-slung) can make it in good weather. Although the road is wide and well-maintained, expect a bumpy ride. Much of the lower portion is a shelf road. This road is closed during the winter.

Great beginner trail. Started at the I-17 exit 320 and drove the trail back into Sedona. Totally the best way to drive this. The whole valley opens up to you this way making for an amazing trip. Lots of rocks, no real obstacles, you just have to pick your lines right and it's a breeze. We ran this late evening with the best views at sunset and finishing the lower portion of the trail in complete darkness. Amazing time

Heavy traffic trail. Absolutely amazing views and seeing the transition from red rock to pine trees is beautiful. While on the trail we saw a lot of UTV, ATV, and 4 wheel drive Jeeps and trucks. Whatever you take on the trail, make sure it has a little clearance to get through some rock areas.

Very bumpy in my old leaf sprung, short wheelbase WILLY'S CJ3B. My long wheelbase Ram chase vehicle said it wasn't that bad. I also recommend this trail as a way to get to Sedona. Adds a couple of hours to the trip to Sedona but VERY scenic.

Trail was a great first day test for off roading with our Jeep Wrangler. Great bumpy ride, views and photos are amazing.
