Oak Creek Canyon Tips (6)

The Verde Valley.

Favorite thing The Verde Valley, which includes Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon, is located in north central Arizona. The Verde Valley is a high desert region south of the Mogollon Rim, which is the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau.

The greater Sedona area is situated in Arizona's famous red rock country tucked under the base of the Mogollon Rim. This includes Oak Creek Canyon to the north and Jacks Canyon to the southeast, plus several other more remote canyons to the west. The oldest rocks visible in this area date from about 1.8 billion years ago.

Don't Fall Off the Cliffs!

Favorite thing Oak Creek Canyon - the area drive from Sedona north to Flagstaff, Arizona, is not one for the weak hearted. This drive is absolutely breathtaking - if you're feeling lucky! Chalk full of beautiful red rocks, creeks and trees this drive also contains some seriously dangerous "drops" down steep cliffs unguarded by rails. If you were driving and were to sneeze at the wrong time - you could find yourself in big trouble - oh, say - at the bottom of a cliff!

The other thing that was new to me was the Transport Truck runaway points - where if a truck lost control they could slam into these huge mounds of sand to stop them. Which, in an area like this, is a really, really good thing. I'd advise to avoid this road/area in winter unless you're an extremely confident driver with excellent-grip tires and brakes!

Visit the Oak Creek Canyon....

Favorite thing Visit the Oak Creek Canyon. Not in any way to be compared with the Grand Canyon as this one is by far as deep and enormous, but green and pictoresk. However Oak Creek Canyon will make a visit to the Grand Canyon more impressive if you look around in this small variant and realise how it's large brother came to be ... and how many years are in between these steps of creating a huge gap.

Fondest memory The peace and quiet in this canyon is especially pleasant as there are not as many visitors as near the Grand Canyon. Also very special is the amount of green.
