  • Great place for tourists to visit. You need to be able to scale rocks that are about two foot steps. Safe slow water flow which you can swim in.
  • Took this scenic drive on the way to the Grand Canyon instead of taking the major highway. There are a couple hiking trails and many pull-offs along the road to walk down to Oak Creek. A very hilly and curvy road though.
  • One of the most beautiful drives in Arizona. The boys and I would pull over with a picnic and spend the day. Love the hikes and camping. The spots are sometimes hard to come by, but go on an off weekend and enjoy everything this amazing canyon has to offer.
  • One of the most beautiful drives I have ever taken. Definitely worth checking out. And go see Sedona while you're there.
  • I spent a vacation there many years ago and it gorgeous there can't wait to go back there to see its beauty!
