Things to see in Oak Creek

The area to the south of Sedona has some spectacular panoramas and great stop-off points for scenic drives through the Arizona countryside. Outdoor types will want to grab your hiking boots and head straight for the Bell Rock trail which weaves through mountainous terrain and past famous natural and manmade landmarks. Just north of Oak Creek you’ll find Bell Rock and its neighboring Courthouse Butte, two well-known rock formations which showcase the stunning local red-striped sedimentary rock. Oak Creek reviews never fail to mention the Chapel of the Holy Cross, an art-deco Catholic church built into the mountainside and inspired by the Empire State Building in New York. Slide Rock State Park is also worth a visit—be sure to pack your swimsuit, as the natural water slide formed from the rock bed of Oak Creek has been voted one of the top ten swimming spots in the United States.

How to get to Oak Creek

Oak Creek lies 7 miles to the south of Sedona and can be reached by car in 90 minutes from the nearby city of Phoenix. Phoenix is also home to the nearest airport, a bustling international hub which hosts international and domestic flights. The village is a little off the beaten track, so a car or motorcycle is recommended to make the most of the surrounding countryside. It is not a necessity, however, as a number of trails can be reached by bike or on foot and there is a tourist shuttle available.
