The Scenic Drive To Roosevelt Dam In Arizona Is Almost As Beautiful As The Destination Itself
Please note: A 5-mile portion of the Apache Trail is closed due to fallout from the Woodbury Fire in June 2019 and runoff from a storm that September. You cannot complete this trail in its entirety as stated in the article below. ADOT and the U.S. Forest Service continue to monitor roadway conditions and will inform the public of any changes. Visit the ADOT website for the latest information.
Roosevelt Lake is among the most spectacular natural wonders in the Grand Canyon State – but the drive to get there is almost, if not equally, as beautiful. One of the best scenic drives in Arizona, the roughly 40-mile Apache Trail gains nearly 6,000 feet of elevation, featuring jaw-dropping mountain passes, vibrant wildflowers, and pristine bodies of water. If you’re not the one driving, rest assured your nose will be pressed to the window the entire time as you admire the views!
Have you ever taken this awe-inspiring scenic drive? If so, we’d love to hear all about your experience in the comments! Don’t forget to check out our previous article to learn about all the recreational opportunities Apache Lake has to offer.
