Senator Highway Is A Back Road You Didn’t Know Existed But Is Perfect For A Scenic Drive In Arizona

Scenic drives are among the best ways to enjoy outdoor scenery, and Arizona is chock full of ’em. Senator Highway, a half-day route from Prescott to Crown King, offers a little bit of everything: towering trees, mountain views, and remnants of the rich mining history our state is so famous for.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Please note: An off-road vehicle is necessary to drive the entire length of the highway. If you don’t have one, consider a one-day rental (there are plenty of outfitters in the area!)
