Highlight: Silver Creek
Silver Creek follows the main north-south route that early pioneers traveled and is now part of the 4,455-mile national corridor named the Great Western Trail. It is also a potential link in a much more local Phoenix to Flagstaff overland route. Typically dotted with juniper with an open sky to the blazing sun, Silver Creek offers a few reprieves with nice areas of shade and packs in plenty of views through the entire drive. It is sandwiched between the Agua Fria National Monument to the west and Pine Mountain Wildnerness Area to the east; the road offers a diverse drive through grassy flats, windswept mesas, gulches, canyons, and tree-lined creeks. One can understand why it is part of the Great Western Trail because this road opens up a myriad of overlanding opportunities north of Phoenix.
