The 27-Mile Road Trip Around Arizona’s Sky Islands Scenic Byway Is A Glorious Spring Adventure
Arizona has no shortage of scenic drives, but Catalina Highway just might be the most awe-inspiring of all. This 27-mile route gains over 6,000 feet of elevation, featuring landscape changes as dramatic as those seen on a road trip from Mexico to Canada. There are tons of scenic overlooks and brief hikes along the way, so buckle up and get ready for a quick ride or all-day adventure — your choice!
