There are many stories about the number of switchbacks on the Coronado Trail (also known as State Route 191, formerly designated as US 666). I lost count after 400 the last time I tried to count them. Just be prepared to pull over and enjoy...More

The Coronado Trail runs between Clifton AZ and Eagar AZ and is about 120 miles long. It has an interesting history and makes for an interesting drive if you have the time. It is a paved, narrow road with plenty of curves and over 400...More
