Spanning two very unique ecosystems in the vast Coconino National Forest, Kinnikinnick Road is a very scenic route. While the southern section sees many visitors on their way to Kinnikinnick Lake or simply to camp among the majestic Ponderosa Pines, the northern half is less traveled. Typically only ranchers and hunters venture up onto the wide-open grasslands of Anderson Mesa. However, the solitude offers a peaceful opportunity to contemplate the amazing views of the San Francisco Peaks in the distance or the tall grasses and wildflowers swaying in the cool breezes. While Kinnikinnick Road is a worthy destination on its own, those with a penchant for traveling longer distances on dirt can connect to FR 126 in the north and Anderson Mesa South to create quite the adventure. Given the many offshoots from Anderson Mesa South, a variety of all dirt routes from Interstate 40 south to Camp Verde become possible. Taken in that light, Kinnikinnick Road becomes the linchpin for classic overland adventures.
