Not for the faint of heart.Awesome views.
AZ 366 Is a hidden gem south of the grand 191 (Devil's Highway).
It's spectacularly beautiful and takes you to a high elevation. Corners are often tight and there are several sets of switchbacks one needs to be ready for.
Beyond the end point the road becomes unpaved. During good weather, with proper bikes, You are welcome to continue on and enjoy further.
US Forestry service people are typically there, but they are quite friendly.
It's much more technical than fast. Enjoy!
Frenzied curves on the Devil's Highway followed by a more relaxed ride through the Gila Forest. This 200 mile loop starts at Three Way, Arizona and immediately heads north and takes in a section of US191 named the Coronada Trail, also known as the Devil’s highway. This is a long stretch that consists of almost no straights at all and has spectactular turns and views. The road itself is quite challenging so stopping to admire the views from the viewpoints is recommended, also many of the turns are blind so one needs caution should be used. At Alpine, the route heads briefly east, and crosses into New Mexico before heading south on US180 where you can find more great turns and some beautiful views of the Gila National Forest. After Wilcox Peak, take a right onto State Highway 78, where you’ll find some more nice turns on the way back to the start. ( Image : Coronado Trail Curves ; Credit : Throttle Girl )
enough gas stations, restaurants, great ride through mountains, lots of camping spots and best of all, no traffic, just you and the road
This long, straight stretch is a really nice two-lane hwy that is easily the most beautiful way to get to Tucson from the Phoenix area. Lots of beautiful cactus, desert vegetation, and Mt Lemmon looming in the distance. There is something very therapeutic about this stretch.
Empty two-lane hwy with spectacular views of undeveloped Arizona Desert. Wild horses, wild donkeys, mesas and overlooks. Gas up in Casa Grande - there is nothing til you get to SR 96 towards Ajo.
Starts in Tucson surroundings looking at some beautyfull ranches, on Sonoita there is a nice place with a really good steak, and a few wineries. Go to Parker Canyon for a little fishing and camping, even rent a pedal boat beautyfull scenery with nice curves. On Tombestone dont miss the famous OK Corral shooting, great place to spend the day.
A nice loop that can be done in 3-4 hours with some interesting stops in small communities...and a winery.
Pleasant and easy stretch with some corners and interesting sights.
Really nice mix of twisting corners that turn into sweepers on the New Mexico side, very good.
Really nice corners and beautiful scenery
Really liked this high speed open route when I did it a while back.
Surface a bit patchy and there can be some tourists but if you avoid peak times and don mind a bit of gravel this a nice one
Very nice road for practicing your cornering skills
Nice ride thru the Santa Rita mountains
One of the best roads in southern Arizona
Biking Nirvana in the mountains, one of the best roads out there. A must do if you're in the area.
