Schnebly Hill Vista Observation Site

Area Status: Open

There are typicaly seasonal road closures to the vista (Merry-Go-Round and above) as well as the occasional closure of the entire lower road from Huckaby on up. The Schnebly Hill Trail begins below the gate usually closed in winter so it is often accessible whereas the vista is not always, at least by vehicle. Also there is no camping or fires permitted at the vista point. And finally, of course, high clearance vehicles are needed to get there from Sedona due to road conditions, no fee required, no trash service or toilets (pack it in/pack it out).

See Schnebly Hill Trail #158 for more information.
