Roadtrip help LA-Sedona-GC-LA

Jump to last reply

We're heading to Arizona in April, plan is to travel from LA to Sedona in a day, stay two nights in Sedona, get up crack of dawn to drive to Grand Canyon, one night in Grand Canyon, drive back to LA after having breakfast at sunrise.

We can't stay any extra nights at any point and accomodation is booked and paid for. We also can't really add the cost of flights and hire car so flying to Phoenix isn't an option.

So! What routes there and back would you recommend? And considering our limited time, what to prioritise when we're there? We're both fairly fit and active (2 adults) but not used to very long hikes or excessive exercise - would definately like to do some hiking within our capabilities - in which case is it better to join an organised hike than set out on our own?

The Road Trip itself, I know it will take us literally all day and we don't have much room for stopping anywhere, was thinking we'd just bomb it down the 10 as quick as poss and get an hour or two in Phoenix before heading up to Sedona (though it doesn't matter if we arrive late and we can set off as early as we want), then on the way back leave as early as possible so we can maybe do some of Route 66 and get in some ghost towns? Or would you leave as early as possible on the first day to get in some stops as well? We've done the 10 to Joshua Tree a lot and I've read the next section of the drive is pretty dull, but we'd likely be arriving after dark in Sedona anyway so what's your number one thing to do if passing through Phoenix?

Thanks in advance!
