If you can drive, get ready for a 4-wheel adventure.
If you have been to Sedona, you already know about the beautiful red rock scenery. One thing you don’t want to miss is renting a modified, fully equipped 4-wheel drive Jeep. Don’t worry if you have never driven one off road. This is not your Daddy’s Jeep, these are easy and fun to drive. Some of the best scenery in Sedona is seen off road.
Plan on spending the day discovering some of the best off-road trails anywhere. There are numerous trails throughout Sedona that will take you to areas only accessible by jeep, horse or hiking. Trail maps will help plan the drive that best fits your level of experience, from beginner to intermediate and expert.
We rented a 4 door Rubicon for the day and chose to drive Schnebly Hill from Sedona to Flagstaff where my son was attending school at NAU. I had experience 4-wheeling back East years ago, however my wife was a new to this and wanted to give it a shot. Schnebly hill offered a beginner start and then transitions into a moderate trail.
BARLOW’S JEEP RENTAL
We rented from Barlow’s Jeep Rental just a mile from our Red Sedona vacation rental. She decided to try her hand at it and once behind the wheel she wouldn’t give it up! During the drive up, there are numerous spots to pull over and enjoy the views, picnic or go for a short hike. Once at the top, you will be surrounded by beautiful, towering Ponderosa pines in Flagstaff. The Jeeps are available in 2 or 4 doors and comes fully off-road modified with air-conditioning, automatic transmission, and satellite radio. Before you leave on your adventure, you’ll want to pack a lunch. Close to your rental is
The Westside Deli so be sure to pick up one of their special sandwiches, as your Jeep will come with a cooler and ice. Bring plenty of water, especially if you plan to stop and hike. When you are done for the day, go directly to the hot tub that is waiting for you at your vacation rental. With a glass of wine in hand, you can now plan your second day of Sedona fun.
