Scenic Drive · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
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.

  • Do this. Just don't do it in a regular car. Take a pink jeep tour, rent a jeep, or rent an Razor, which is what we did.  more »
  • DO IT! We booked a tour with Safari Jeep Adventures and had Wyatt as our guide. The drive is fun, of course it us rough, but that's part of it! The views are so worth it. Wyatt was so knowledgeable...  more »
  • A poor review because the road is no long driveable for stock 4X4 pickups. We have taken ours on some pretty rough routes but the road is no longer navigable by longer wheel base vehicles. Sad that.....  more »

  • Sunset at the overlook is spectacular. This road does need a high clearance vehicle and 4 wheel drive. It is a very rough ride. Be prepared.
  • Absolutely awe inspiring and truly unique experience. Be warned however, the last 20% of this trail ( going from flag to Sedona route) is BRUTAL. Extremely rocky, high clearance required. This not something that you can take most vehicles on without risk of damage.
  • This view is awesome. Great air and nice sign. It was very to get here but if you have a Polaris or something like that it’s really easy. If you don’t have something like that you buy one. If you don’t have the money just book a jeep tour. You probably will end up with old ladies as I did but they were really nice and friendly. One of the ladies wanted me to come to their home but I just ignored that lol. Don’t book these pink Jeep tours. These are the most expensive ones I ever saw. Keep that in your mind and the money stays with you kind. :)
  • Amazing view from this overlook. The road from I-17 is a little rough, but beautiful. There are some dispersed camping spots on the way in. Please be mindful of fire weather conditions and leave no trace. Thank you.
  • Amazing views at the top of Schnebly road. You need a 4x4 with soft tires to get there... or a Jeep tour which we did. Highly recommend going here though. The ride is very rough if you go, so expect to be tossed around.
