This is a long, twisty drive with much to see. Allow plenty of time so you can move at a relaxing pace. The town of Crown King is the highlight of the trip, but you’ll also drive past interesting Cleator and Bumble Bee. Many marked hiking trails. Gas is available at the Crown King General Store, but hours vary so call ahead (928-632- 7911). Unlicensed vehicles are not allowed on Forest Road 52 north of Waypoint 02, or anywhere along Crown King Road, C.R. 59. Many great side roads for ATVs to explore. Impressive views descending from Crown King. Route can be driven in either direction.
Open in winter except during heavy snows.
