America's Scenic Byways

Coronado Trail Scenic Byway

123 miles - Four to five hours of driving time, including over 400 switchbacks

Drive through high desert and forests, and see former Native American footpaths first used as horse paths by Conquistadors and prospectors, then as wagon trails for pioneers. While admiring the scenic beauty, imagine nomadic tribes of hunters, gatherers, trappers, outlaws, homesteaders, lumberjacks, and ranchers living along the byway.
