The Basics

A scenic drive through beautiful Oak Creek Canyon is well worth the effort whether or not you actually need to travel north from Sedona. Grand Canyon day trips from Sedona pass through the gorge, as do small-group tours of the Sedona area (along with visits to the Chapel of the Holy Cross, Bell Rock, Cathedral Rock, and Airport Mesa) and multi-day itineraries through Arizona.

The tour leader was knowledgable, entertaining and focused on safety throughout. We never felt rushed and had ample time in both areas. The experience at the Grand Canyon and Sedona was breathtaking. Plenty of rest/bathroom stops along the way. Exceeded my expectations

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Oak Creek Canyon is a must-see for outdoor enthusiasts, adventure travelers, and photographers.

  • Be sure to bring along sun protection and plenty of drinking water, as it’s easy to get dehydrated in the arid climate.

  • Wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking over uneven surfaces if you plan to get out of the car and explore.

When to Get There

Oak Creek Canyon is stunning year-round, so deciding when to visit is largely a matter of preference. Hikers come to enjoy the desert wildflowers from March to May, while summer brings temperatures warm enough for swimming at Slide Rock State Park or Grasshopper Point.
