I can understand why people say that this road has nice views, but I wouldn't know or care due to the EXTREME danger of being a passenger with an excellent driver and still horrified at all the severe curves and narrowness. Only a one lane...More

We did a morning drive from Globe up to Show Low in July 2018...warm but wonderful. We previously did the drive from Show Low to Globe, which is probably the better drive, because you are looking forward down into the canyon. Numerous turnouts for seeing...More

Drove through the canyon while heading to Globe. Stopped off and took pictures. Make sure your breaks are new because of the steep downgrades.

This is a very beautiful scenic drive going towards Las Vegas. I highly recommend it if you have the time.

This canyon is a short drive from Queen Creek. The canyon is beautiful! Make sure to descend the steps to the river. The climb up is rough if you are not in shape, however, my 91-year-old mother made it!

Make sure you have time to stop at the rest stop and pull offs. Take your time and dont rush. It is a beautiful scenic drive. Definitely stop at the ready stop at the bottom and walk around to the water. So peaceful and relaxing.

A very curve road that takes you through the Pinal forest to a peak of over 7000 feet. It is worth the drive, but you need to have the time.

We came up from Tucson that day. It was raining and generally miserable, drove it south to north, ended in Sho Low. In spite of the weather, you could tell immediately, it was something special. As long as you've got... More
