Schnebly Hill Road
Schnebly Hill Road is one of the most well-known and scenic routes in the Sedona area, with twists and turns, beautiful cliffs, wash out areas and great views from the pull off spots.
This trail is 2WD friendly, but air down the tires for comfort and mind the small drop offs if you’re on stock size tires.
Apache Maid Lookout
Out & Back
Constructed in 1961, Apache Maid Lookout on the Red Rock Ranger District of the Coconino National Forest is a 14'x14' metal CL-100 series cab on a 30' metal tower. Although it is on a 7301' high ridge, it overlooks fire prone lower elevation forest and brush regions.
This trail is stock 2WD friendly.
Van Deren Cabin
Out & Back
A short but interesting drive close to Sedona. Only the last part of the trip is challenging. See remains of a well-preserved homesteader’s cabin. Due to weekend trail congestion, we only visit the cabin on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
This trail is considered 4WD for for stock Tundras, with plenty of room on either side of the trail to help avoid scratches.
Oak Creek Homestead
A short, beautiful drive that descends through scenic red rock country. Most of this trail is moderate with lots of rocks. It features one short section of narrow, rocky shelf road nicknamed “Cliffhanger”, that may be a new challenge for some drivers.
This trail is suitable for 4WD Tundras with a small lift and larger than stock tires.
Red Rock Powerline
Out & Back
Unlike most trails under power lines, this one is quite scenic thanks to an abundance of red rock and mountains nearby. Much of this road is easy to moderate, and there are just enough steep, ledgy spots to keep it interesting.
4WD Tundras with a small lift and larger than stock tires will get through with light pinstriping possible - nothing a little wash and wax can’t fix.
Broken Arrow is the belle of the ball when it comes to Sedona trails. With amazing red rock formations towering into the sky, this off-road trail is full of awe-inspiring beauty. Add in a good mix of challenging obstacles and it’s easy to see why this trail is so popular.
A 4WD Tundra with a small lift and larger than stock tires can handle this trail, but beware you may encounter some pinstriping in places - easily taken care of with a little buff.
Just outside of Jerome sits a rock that never stops smiling. Smiley Rock is one of the more famous off-road trails in the state for good reason. The drive is challenging, but not overly difficult and provides inspiring scenery as you travel along the cool and shaded Martin Canyon. Keep an eye out for the Smiley Rock itself on the left side of the trail.
This trail is rated hard for the tightness of the trail and requires 4WD with a small lift and larger than stock tires. Pinstriping is almost guaranteed on this overgrown trail.
