ATV/Jeep Trails


There are many dirt roads you may access, but no "off-roading". The dirt roads are indicated on our map by dashed lines, but there is no formal list. Around Sedona, your choices are pretty limited. Here is information on each of them:

Schnebly Hill Road is everyone's favorite. We do not "rate" our roads, but it is the worst one we have! It is very rough with rocks sticking up. It it 6 miles from Sedona to the top vista on Schnebly Hill Road and another 6 miles through to I-17.

FR152 is a 5 mile dirt road that goes to trails. It would be our next worst road.

There are several roads west of Sedona that lead to Indian ruins/rock art sites & to Sycamore Canyon - Boynton Pass Road., FR525, FR525C, FR795. These are all passable by car but are like "washboards".

The commercial jeep tours also go to two very short trails that are legal for you to drive on, but you have to assess them for suitability. They are Soldier Pass and Broken Arrow. There are hiking trails there also, but very short jeep trails and are usually used by something with a short wheel base and a lift kit.

There are quite a few roads further away from us toward Cottonwood, Jerome, Flagstaff, etc. If you are going to be in our area for a while and need more information, please stop in to our visitor center.


Casner Mountain Trail #8

ATV maximum width is 50 inches. (ATVs and bikes must remain on the trail. Leaving the trail to either side would put you in the Wilderness areas where vehicles are not allowed. See Casner Mountain Trail for information about the closed gates.)

Special Program for full-size 4x4s

The forest service is offering a program for full-size four-wheel-drive vehicles (over 50" wide) for use on this trail between May 16th and October 14th. A permit is required. Permits will only be issued for groups with at least three vehicles and not more than ten vehicles. Group size may not exceed 25persons. Only one permit will be issued per calendar-week. Allow two to six weeks for permit processing. Permits will not be issued for commercial use and not for overnight camping. The gates are closed and locked, but permit-holders will receive the combination.
