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.

  • I have a 4Runner which did well on the road, which is a 4-wheel drive road only. Beautiful views and a nice escape from overcrowded hiking trails and full parking lots at Trail Heads

  • From Sedona, 4x4 & lifted is needed. Hard core Rocky for 5 miles. From the I-17 exit 320 in, it's smooth dirt road and forested. Beautiful area and drive.
  • After a day or so in flooded Flagstaff, we planned to drop into Sedona from the I-17 via Schnebly Hill Road. Pretty day, but a bit hot. Great drive on this road with amazing views.
