Schnebly Hill Road, Sedona
(4.3/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
An unpaved route that moves from a mesa into the Sedona Valley, Schnebly Hill Road attracts those who love scenic off-roading. Layer upon layer of sedimentary rock provide hues of red, orange, brown and green. For the best views, start at the road's plateau and descend 609.6 m (2,000 ft) into the valley. The rocky road is best-suited for four-wheel drive vehicles. It can become impassable in wet weather, so be sure to check the forecast before heading out. By using our Sedona travel itinerary planner, you can arrange your visit to Schnebly Hill Road and other attractions in Sedona.
