Description 

This area is in the westernmost part of Sedona and (interestingly enough) located off Dry Creek Road, north of highway 89.

Getting There 

Drive west on 89 to reach Dry Creek Road, then head north. The road turns to dirt after a while. Continue to parking as described for routes here.
