The Red Rock Scenic Byway Road is your Gateway to the world-famous Red Rock Country of Sedona, Arizona....just 110 miles north of Phoenix, about 40 miles south of Flagstaff, and only a few hours south of the Grand Canyon.

This highly acclaimed National Scenic Byway, begins shortly after you exit #298 off Interstate 17 and has earned the distinction of being Arizona's First All-American Road! It winds through the evergreen pinion-covered Coconino National Forest, with several scenic pullouts, as well as through the extraordinary, prehistoric Red Rocks with nearby parking (RV friendly) and all levels of hiking and biking trails.   Ask at the Forest Visitor Center for the trails that are handicap accessible!

Although the Scenic Byway is only 7.5 miles, it is long on spectacular sights and Fun Things To Do...and a definite "must see/must stop" in Sedona!

A Sedona and Red Rock Country Adventure Starts on the Red Rock Scenic Byway
pbs weekend explorer program, kickstarter, red rock scenic byway, sedonaOur first crowd-funding campaign, in partnership with Jeffrey Lehmann's Weekend Explorer TV Series, was to make an episode on the Red Rock Scenic Byway. It didn't work out although we did reach over 50% of our goal. But when you don't succeed, you learn from it -- and you do it better next time!

The Emmy-winning Weekend Explorer TV Series' goal was to share the wonders of our National Parks and National Scenic Byways with a nationwide and international audience; their programs are provided free to PBS stations nationwide and around the world. There has been a large decline over the last 20 years of Americans visiting National Parks; Jeffrey Lehmann strongly believes we need to shine a light one of America's greatest natural resources -- our nationwide parks and scenic byway system.

Thank you to all that donated to this campaign; by now you've been contacted that your contribution has been refunded. We will regroup, learn from our mistakes, and try again in 2014. With your continued support, we will ultimately succeed!

In 2005, Red Rock Scenic Byway was chosen by the U.S. Department of Transporation to be Arizona's first All-American Road, which means it is a national "destination unto itself." The Byway is a destination you will not only want to drive -- but stop, stroll, hike, bike, golf, shop, dine, stay -- and enjoy!

The Byway winds through the charming Village of Oak Creek (the historic name on some maps is "Big Park") and is home to three of Sedona's finest golf courses and two of its most famous and beautiful Vortexes -- Bell Rock and Cathedral Rock!
