8 Country Roads In Arizona That Are Pure Bliss In The Fall

Arizona is looking a little more gorgeous than usual now that the fall season has started to settle in parts of the state. Trees and their leaves are starting to warm into tones of yellow, orange, and (eventually) red. If you’re looking for a scenic drive that will take you into some of Arizona’s more rural areas to see the colors of fall, take note because we’re going to show you a few routes to consider if you think 89A will be too crowded for you.

Note: Due to the secluded and often rough nature of these roads, you may want to consider driving a high clearance vehicle.

Those are some beautiful spots! If you want a drive that’s a little more populated, check out our recent article, Take This Gorgeous Fall Foliage Road Trip to See Arizona Like Never Before.
