This may be one of the shortest road trips of your life – just about 15 miles – but every minute of it is worth it because of its incredible sights of unbelievable views of the famous Red Rock Country of Sedona and adventures along the way. You can hike, bike, golf, and join tours to see just why the Red Rocks are unique (they are comprised of sediment layers deposited over many millions of years). The byway starts in Sedona, on the southwest edge of the Colorado Plateau, the largest in the country.
