Getting here

Traveling to Sedona, AZ and getting around

From airport shuttles to trail trollies, several services can help you plan to tread lightly while you’re in Red Rock Country. Airport shuttles run throughout the day from Phoenix, Flagstaff and Prescott and make stops at several hotels in Sedona and the Village of Oak Creek. If you’re driving from nearby cities, be sure to check traffic as there are only two roads into and out of Sedona: State Route 89A (via highway 260 through Cottonwood to the south or I-17 from Flagstaff to the north) and State Route 179.

The Sedona Shuttle, launched in 2022, is a free climate-controlled shuttle service with a fleet running on busy days to help minimize trailhead congestion and transport hikers to some of the area’s top trails. Looking to venture out? Arizona wine country tours are a popular favorite, with transportation offered by many tour operators.
