Are you itching to explore the many sights and sounds of Arizona this summer? The best way to get out and explore is to hit the road in your trusty Ford. From your friends at Sanderson Ford, here are a few of the most exciting drives you can experience right here in our home state.
The Devil’s Highway
If you’re looking for a bit of a thrill while driving through Arizona, head 200 miles east of Phoenix to the town of Clifton and then set your navigation to Alpine. Your journey will take you along the infamously curvy Coronado Trail, which was originally called Highway 666, lending it the nickname “the Devil’s Highway.” The moniker is appropriate; this route takes you 3,500 feet up through winding roads and past steep drop-offs.
The Apache Trail
Fords are revered for their off-roading capabilities, and there are plenty of fun places in Arizona where you can leave the beaten path behind. One of them is Route AZ-88, also known as the Apache Trail, a mostly dirt path that boarders the side of a mountain and offers some fantastic views. The terrain may be rough, but with the right vehicle, you’ll be enjoying every minute of your ride.
The Catalina Highway
The Santa Catalina Mountains are truly a sight to behold when visiting the greater Tucson area. The 24-mile Catalina Highway lets you scale 9,000 feet of curvy mountain trail, giving you beautiful views as you climb. Since there’s no road leading back down on the other side of the mountain, you’ll have to reverse and coast back down the way you came. But that’s all part of the fun.
