White Mountain Scenic Road
A 67-mile scenic loop, west on State Route 260 from Hon-dah southeast of Pinetop, south on State Route 273, then north on State Route 261 back to SR 260
Creeks, lakes, mountain meadows and ponderosa pines mark this drive through the heart of the White Mountains. Along the way, amenities include skiing, lodging, fishing, camping, hiking and wildlife-watching. In the fall months, reds, golds and ambers emerge from the changing leaves along the route.

The San Carlos Trail
Trail begins five miles north of US 70 at the eastern terminus of Indian Route 6
19th century travelers mapped out the historic San Carlos Trail by following Indians and discovering roads that connected towns with other towns. Green scenery along the way and scatters of ancient Indian ruins make this a worthwhile drive. The trail begins at the mouth of the Gilson Wash on the San Carlos River and runs through Ranch Creek, Pioneer Valley, Dripping Springs Valley, Ash Creek, and Piper Springs Wash to the San Pedro River.

Additional Information: San Carlos Apache Indian Recreation and Wildlife Center, (928) 475-2579.

Coronado Trail Scenic Drive
More than 120 miles of U.S. Route 191 from Springerville to Clifton
On the route cut by Spanish explorer Francisco Vasquez de Coronado in 1540, visitors today explore the winding road between deserts and the high country pines. An elevation change of 6,000 feet takes travelers through the same life zones that occur between Mexico and Canada, but in a four-hour drive. Along the way, you can camp, fish, hike, boat and watch wildlife.

White River Scenic Road
Spanning 11 miles of State 73 from Hon Dah to 5 miles north of Whiteriver
Grassy meadows, juniper and pine trees and the rushing waters of the White River surround this scenic drive. While traveling, take the time to tour Alchesay/Williams Creek National Fish Hatchery, Fort Apache Historic Park and Kinishba Ruins, or relax with a picnic and watch for wildlife along the White River.
