Trail of the Mountain Spirits Scenic Byway

95 miles - Take three hours to drive, or six-eight hours to experience this byway.

The Trail of the Mountain Spirits beckons. Go where the spirits of miners, homesteaders, Indians, Spanish explorers, and mountain men have left their marks. Cross the Continental Divide, experience the wild Gila River, walk amongst the ruins of ancients to sense life before history, and hear the sounds of solitude.
