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.

  • This is a high clearance 4x4 road. Totally unmaintained as per the wishes of the Jeep tour companies. Even my Jeep Wrangler Unlimited was not up to the trek because of the protruding rocks. Concerned ...  more »

  • Phenomenal view and lovely camping just outside. You'll need a four-wheel vehicle with high clearance to reach this sport, but well worth the drive!
  • Schnebly Hill Vista is absolutely stunning! The road up from Sedona is extremely rocky and you'll need a high clearance 4x4 to get there. They have all kinds of rentals in Sedona to get you there. It is worth the drive to sit in the edge of the vista and ponder life.
  • Amazing views! A lot of fun. Need 4 wheel drive if the weather is bad. Otherwise a high-clearance vehicle will be fine. It's really bumpy :-)
  • Awesome ride! Never knew you could get to Sedona from Schnebly Hill Rd until last weekend. Rode the trail on an ATV, lots of terrific views! Be prepared to yell "Hello" to all the tourists on the Pink Jeep Tour Jeeps. Fun ride!
  • Good luck hiking here. Drive up in an ATV rental and enjoy a spot not often seen - just be prepared to drive for hours over the rough terrain. Part of the fun. :)
