Schnebly Hill Road, Sedona
(4.3/5 based on 480+ 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.

  • We went up this road and stopped at a trail head near the end (where the road is available only to jeeps, etc.) Took lots of pictures near sunset. Spectacular! 
  • We took a 3 hour jeep tour up this incredibly rocky road and the scenery was awesome! You get bounced around a LOT in the jeep but it's worth it. 
  • The road has deteriorated over the years. it looks like no one is maintaining it. A 4 wheel drive vehicle is a MUST. The views are awesome.
