Places to explore near Sedona?

I'm heading to Sedona next weekend and I would like to take the jeep. I had ankle surgery on October 15th so I'm not looking for anything hardcore. I'm still in a cast so something I can spend half the day or less exploring in the jeep would be ideal.

Is schnebly hill road any good? Thanks for the help. Fwiw I'll be in a 2012 jkur.

We went up it in my wifes Grand Cherokee last spring and did the loop at the top. Easy drive. We also did Soldiers Pass and Broken Arrow (except the stairs) nothing to hard on any of them. It only had 4,000 kms on it and stock street tires.

x3 on broken arrow...sunset and/or sunrise at the top of schenbly is a must. Makes a good rt home. wheel the day away in sedona then head up the hill an hour or two before sunset, then hit the hwy home....was on the top loop camping a couple months ago and it is a bumpy boulder strewn ride for sure but no ledges or real obstacles, much dift than the sandstone below.

At the top of schenbly Just past the lookout, continue up the road another 50 ft there is right turn that will take you on a flat but rocky loop that goes back to schenbly. Its not real hard but really cool, pretty short.

You could do all three in a day if you dont get stuck behind too many pink jeep tours, Broke arrow, Solders pass, schenbly and the top loop on schenbly.

When you get to Sedona, look up Barlow Jeep Rentals. They are super nice people and have trail direction sheets of all the trail around town to explore. We stopped by their place in August this year and they even let us used their high pressure hose for a few minutes.

This trip I am. I will be getting in late Friday night and then leaving Monday morning. I plan on coming back though and doing some camping. The area looks beautiful and isn't too far from me.

I had an awesome time on schnebly hill road and soldier's pass today. I have a lot of pictures and will go through them and post up the best ones. If you are anywhere near these two trails I highly recommend you spend the time to drive them and hike some of the areas adjacent to them. I was frustrated to be on crutches but it just gives me a reason to come back.

Here are some of the better pics. We got really lucky because in the three days we were in Sedona, we got a nice mix of weather. I was also fortunate to spend veteran's day with my family and friends.

We ended up driving Schnebly Hill road and Soldier's Pass Road. I am really happy with the Jeep. It was perfect for this type of trip.

Definitely had a blast out in Sedona when I was there. Took the wifey's XK down the stairs and she was white-knuckling the whole way! Would have loved to had my JK out there, but I wasn't about to do the 6,000+ mile trip in it!
