Garland Prairie is a massive alpine meadow. The road by the same name is the spine of the area's trail network. The road begins and ends off Interstate 40. Short stretches of the ends are paved since they serve homes and small businesses. The vast center is a wide, well-maintained gravel road that winds in and out of private land and the Kaibab National Forest. Both entities graciously number the road 141.

Expect to see cattle grazing on the prairie and deer peaking from the forests. Old homesteads sit abandoned on the prairie.

Being a busy travel artery, there are no campsites along the trail. But the many offshoots have every sort of forest recreation you can imagine.
