Highlight: Sheep Springs Road
Sheep Spring Road leads into the heart of the vast and beautiful Coconino National Forest. Lined with ponderosa pines and the occasional aspen grove, the often bursts onto expansive alpine meadows, called parks by the locals. Sheep Springs Road traverses three large parks; Tie, Brolliar, and Long. These are favorite haunts of elk, mule deer, and pronghorns. The occasional flock of wild turkeys may cross the road as well. Both Brolliar and Long Park host historic log cabins. The Brolliar Park cabin was built in 1911 and is currently being restored. The Long Park cabin is two rooms and is in ruins but remains an interesting glimpse into the history of the area. Sheep Springs Road is a fun and scenic drive, but stop and get out of your rig. Listen to the wind singing in the top of the pines, a distant elk bugling, and jays squawking in the trees. Life is good in the Coconino.
