In just an hour on this 27-mile scenic drive, you'll leave the saguaro and palo verde of the Sonoran Desert behind and climb to cool alpine forests and meadows—a biological change equivalent to driving from Mexico to Canada! Spectacular views look out over Tucson and surrounding valleys and mountains. Many picnic areas and several campgrounds line the way. Hikers have a great variety of trails to choose from, and backpackers can head out for days. Cyclists will enjoy the highway's scenery and get a good workout.
