Easy but fun road. Lots of great scenery and I think I only saw a total of 3 other vehicles the whole way.

Really beautiful road that anyone could drive. The first 1/4 or so has some steep drop offs. The road isn't very narrow, but if you or your passengers are scared of heights/shelf roads, I could see this being stressful. Just a great drive with little traffic, even on a Sunday. Once you get out of Jerome, the views really open up and it seems like you can see for miles and miles with no building/civilization in sight.

Well kept forest service corridor road. 25MPH most of the way.

This road may be a 1-1 for difficulty, but it is a 10-10 for scenic value. We originally planned on using it as a connection to the cliff dwellings, but came away very impressed with the views on this trail. Started with the mine site ... looks like the ultimate mine equipment hoarder owns that property. The views of the San Francisco Peaks and the Sedona red rocks were fantastic ... simply can't capture the vastness in a picture. And, it ended at the old bridge crossing the Verde River.

This was a fun drive. Ultra scenic and views that literally go for miles. We were able to see the San Francisco Peaks clearly throughout the majority of the run, with some glimpses of the Sedona red rocks. We used this road as part of a larger south-to-north run on part of the Northern Arizona Traverse.
