Welcome to Oak Creek Canyon
Hwy 89A from Sedona into Oak Creek Canyon is a surreally scenic drive that you won't soon forget. The canyon is at its narrowest and most dramatic here, with russet and vermilion cliffs carpeted in pine and sycamore rising up from the chuckling waterway at its base. Giant cottonwoods clump along the creek, providing a scenic, shady backdrop for trout fishing and swimming, and turn a dramatic golden in fall. A small visitor center is open seasonally, and there's a year-round American Indian arts and crafts market. Unfortunately, traffic can be brutal in summer.
