Schnebly Hill Vista Overlook, 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 Vista Overlook 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 Vista Overlook and other attractions in Sedona.

  • Great views and not too busy, we were the only ones there. Went up on an all wheel vehicle kinda deal on a tour with some friends.
  • Great spot. Not recommended for little cars though. The road is rough. It gets windy here at night
  • Nice 4 wheel drive trip. Great views not many people.
  • Got to have 4x4 or a truck but worth the trip!
  • Very nice outlook. The road up to it is quiet rough if you do it on your own.
