Overall, a great run to make in a well equipped off-roader. We went on a Saturday (a very touristy day of the week) and saw about a dozen other vehicles, mostly pink jeeps. Schnebly is pretty wide so squeezing by, and even passing others is not a problem. There are several great lookouts as you descend/climb the valley and each offers lots of space to pull off and even chill/eat on the rocks. Our 4-seat X3 doesn’t have the fox tune yet but we really didn’t need it, most obstacles can be avoided without trouble. It’s a very rocky trip so you won’t get much speed but it’s also a relatively short run, so the slow pace won’t drag down the day.

Nice climb and some flat hiking at the top. Not many people on the trail because it’s a bit longer than most in the area.

Enjoyed this great elevated hike today! The reward is the spectacular view at the top of the trailhead.

Great views! Make sure you take a 4x4 as it's a rough bumpy ride. We took the trail from north to south so came down into Sedona. Just breathtaking especially with the fall color!

Must have a high clearance vehicle, but the views are well worth the bumpy ride. I suggest heading down the trial (come from Flagstaff) to be able to see the best views. Sunset in particular was breathtaking.

the map information is off by several miles. after unsuccessfully wandering around for 2 hours I gave up and left. on the way out I stopped at the hike house and they were able to show me the correct location on their topo map. the real trailhead is much further out schnebly hill road. also, it is unlikely that this goes to seven sacred pools as the title suggests because the sacred pools are on the other side of town and the trail heads away from them.

some of the BEST views , I've ever seen! Makes you want to get lost in the quiet beauty. Very close to town, shnebly Hill Rd. can be a rough ride if your vehicle doesn't have enough clearance thou. A must see if visiting the Sedona Area and you love the outdoors! It does close in the winter due to snow.
