Rim Road/General Crook Trail Loop
« on: July 09, 2010, 02:39:15 PM »
Location: Mogollon Rim/Coconino NF
Rating: 1.0
Vehicle Requirements: Grandma's Crown Victoria ;)

One of the most striking geologic features in Arizona is the Mogollon Rim. This steep escarpment, measured in thousands of feet and hundreds of miles, begins just across  the border in New Mexico and stretches diagonally two thirds of the way across Arizona. As such, it forms the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau and stands as one of the most impressive overlooks in the Grand Canyon State.

That precipitous drop-off is the star of this scenic drive, part of which traces the rim's edge across the Coconino. In so doing, it follows another feature of interest, the General Crook Trail which the famous Indian fighter blazed to his stronghold at Fort Apache.

When you're not on the rim, you'll still find much to see along this drive, as it winds through a forest well populated with wildlife and gives you a taste of canyon country in scenic East Clear Creek and Barbershop canyons.

Location: Drive 50 miles south from Flagstaff to Clints Well. The scenic drive starts here. Head 9 miles north on AZ 87 to FR 95. Follow FR's 95, 96, and 321 a total of 19 miles to FR 300, then 17 miles west (right) to AZ 87 and 9 miles back to Clint's Well.

Length: 154 miles round trip from Flagstaff, 54 miles round trip from Clints Well

Season: April through November

Attractions: Panoramic views off the Mogollon Rim, Photography, Wildlife watching, Fall colors, Hiking, Mountain biking

Road Condition: FH 3 and AZ 87 are paved. All Forest Roads are gravelled and suitable for sedans. Forest Roads are closed in winter.

Driving Time: 4 hours (154 miles) from Flagstaff, 2 hours (54 miles) from Clints Well.
