  • 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.
