Travel and Hotels

Directions from Phoenix Airport to SCLC.  Drive onto Interstate 10 west at the Phoenix Airport exit, and then onto Interstate 17 north toward Flagstaff.  Follow Interstate 17 north from Phoenix about 100 miles.  Exit at state highway 179 (exit 298).  Go about 15 miles north on highway 179 and turn right on Schnebly Hill Rd (if you get to the "Y" where Hwy 179 ends at Hwy 89A, you have gone a quarter mile too far).  Go about a quarter mile up Schnebly Hill Rd to number 333 and turn left into SCLC.

Directions from Flagstaff.  If it is snowing, take Interstate 17 south from Flagstaff about 41 miles to state highway 179.  From there, follow the directions above as if coming from Phoenix. This route takes about an hour from Flagstaff to Sedona.

If the weather is good, take Interstate 17 south from Flagstaff.  Exit at US highway 89A (exit 337, which is 2 miles south of the junction of Interstate 40 and 17).  This takes you on a breathtaking 25 mile, 40 minute drive through Oak Creek Canyon.  When you arrive in Sedona, continue on Hwy 89A to the first roundabout.  Go 3/4 around the roundabout, and exit on Hwy 179 going south.  Immediately after crossing Oak Creek bridge (1/4 mile), turn left onto Schnebly Hill Rd.  Go another 1/4 mile up Schnebly Hill Rd to number 333 and turn left into SCLC.
