The Stunning Arizona Drive That Is One Of The Best Road Trips You Can Take In America

Call us biased, but we’re convinced that Arizona has the most breathtaking natural scenery in America. From the lowland deserts down south to the lush alpine forests up north, our state has a little bit of everything. This road trip, centered around north-central and northeast Arizona, takes you from Canyon de Chelly National Monument to Humphreys Peak, making a few other scenic stops along the way. The 5.5-hour drive showcases some of the most beautiful places in Arizona, from the tallest mountain in the state to a 100-room ancient ruin to a waterfall that’s taller than Niagara Falls itself.

You’ll find the customizable route for the trip on Google Maps.

Note: As of May 2022, the Wupatki National Monument is temporarily closed due to the Tunnel Fire. Keep checking the National Park Service website for updates.
