There’s a reason “taking the high road” is not considered an easy task. Have you ever driven a mountain road? Some of them, including those here in Arizona, are often steep, rugged roads with hairpin turns and can even be impassable during certain times of the year. It can be a difficult, slow trek but one that is certainly worth the effort in the end.

Today, we’re going to check out one of Arizona’s highest roads: State Route 366.

State Route 366 was closed earlier this year due to a forest fire but most of the road has re-opened. You can find details about the road and any closures by visiting the U.S. Forest Service website.
