Red Rock Scenic Byway 

Take everyone on a sightseeing tour. Pack up the rental car with everything you’ll need for a good time sightseeing and taking in all the Sedona red rock beauty.

The byway itself only measures ten miles in length, but you can while away the day at the many scenic pull-off points along the route.
