“What a nice drive! But beware!!”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

My hour commute, 3 times per week, allows me to make this drive. My favorite time is when there is inclement weather. Brings out the mysterious side of the area. BUT... would someone please tell other drivers--"If you are IN the roundabout, you have the right of way. If you are NOT in the roundabout, you DO NOT have the right of way." There are close to a dozen roundabouts on this drive. They are inherently more dangerous than standard intersections, and are made more dangerous because of drivers who don't get it. Beware!! And if you are a visitor, remember there are many locals who travel this road for their daily lives and livelihood. Do not stop in the middle of the road and take pictures. It is rude, illegal, and dangerous!!

“Best Scenic Byway I have driven”
Reviewed 29 February 2012

We have driven through all the scenic byways in Oregon, most of Washington and Maui and this was my favorite. We traveled it Flagstaff to 1-17. We had a hard time keeping our eyes on the road. Take your time and stop to get out often. This place is magical and driving through just isn't enough. We only were able to stay one night, but will be back soon.

... on this road. We live just off the hwy. Shucks, somebody has to live here. Whoever designed this road, did a great job.
