Drive on Schnebly Hill Road near Sedona – Arizona, USA

Sedona is now a town surrounded by red-rock buttes, steep canyon walls and pine forests, in the northern Verde Valley region of the U.S. state of Arizona.

Sedona’s history dates back approximately 10,000 years when the first settlers to the area, Native American cave dwellers, inhabited the caves in and around the Sedona area.

The first Europeans, a Spanish expedition in search of rich Indian mines, discovered the Sedona area in 1583. Sedona began as a small, remote ranching and farming settlement in 1876 when the first permanent settler, John James Thompson, squatted in Oak Creek Canyon.

By the early 1900s, two dozen families lived in the settlement. In 1902, Theodore Carl Schnebly petitioned for a new postal station, and when approved, he named the new post office Sedona, after his wife.

This road was named after him.

Most drivers in a high clearance 4wheel or two-wheel drive vehicle can do the Schnebly Hill Road if they take it slow.

A family sedan is not suitable as the road becomes very rocky Sedona to the Vista. The road is impassable when wet.
