A lovely drive up the mountain. Views all around are spectacular. Would love to go back and hike up instead. Only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is when you get to the top you get all jumbled up in a cell phone tower...More

Got some clearance on your vehicle? You only need a little to tackle this fun road. We almost didn't try it because I read it would be bumpy, it wasn't at all and was very scenic, with thick trees and cooler temps welcoming you on...More

We drove up to the lookout point although I'm interested in returning to do the hike as it's just such a pretty area. The road was good. You need a high clearance vehicle for sure. The further up you go the rougher it gets. The...More

We hiked the Bill Williams Mountain Trail 21 to the overlook. It was about 8 miles round trip, with a 2200 foot elevation gain. We were fortunate to do the hike on a cool, clear day. It had rained two days before, but the trail...More

Very scenic and cool area. Lots of green and views all around. Nice place to get away from the heat.

We had done some reading that helped us decide to make this drive. It was not what we expected and was really not worth the effort. It was hard to find the road leading to the trail from Williams. It had more than one name...More
