Roadside signs point the way to a number of hiking trails and a few spur roads leading off into the back country. There is a campground and picnic area at Wet Beaver Creek Crossing and another along West Clear Creek at route's end. A primitive road leads to an undeveloped campground and recreation area at the mouth of West Clear Creek Canyon. A short side trip leads to Montezuma's Well National Monument, a large spring surrounded by cultural sites.
Keep an eye out for road runners, coyotes and javelinas as you drive. The road is a bit rough, but if you go slow it's not too bad.
