“Nice overlook of Oak Creek Canyon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

Unfortunately this was about the only area along Hwy 89A through Oak Creen Canyon that was open to stop at (due to potential flooding as a result of a fire earlier this spring). Easy on/off access and lots of parking, it was a great place to get out and see the canyon and stretch our legs. There were a few craft stalls set up for those wanting to shop for local/native art and crafts. Definitely worth the stop between Flagstaff and Sedona.

We used this a stop off point on our way to the Grand Canyon and were not disappointed by the great views in all directions

“Good prep for Grand Canyon heights.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

From this vista overlook, you can see the canyon for many miles, mostly to the south. The dropoff from the overlook is straight down, so it is foreshadowing of what awaits you in the Grand Canyon National Park. There is an interesting assortment of native Americans selling jewelry and other tourist-oriented items. It's also a nice break from the sometimes harrowing driving on Rt. 89A.

Since the late Spring 2014 forest fire, drivers are not allowed to pull off onto the road shoulders of Rt. 89A. So this overlook is a welcome rest stop along the scenic highway.

“Great Views...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

This overlook is well worth the stop if you are driving down from Flagstaff...be warned, it gets very crowded during tourist season...the "Indian Market" is really not that much UNLESS you are a "newby" to Native American crafts...then it could be interesting.

“Of course Oak Creek needs an overlook”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

And what an overlook it is! Perched high above this is a mandatory stop & not just for a possible restroom break.
