We traveled thru this forest while travelling to and from the Grand Canyon. It is a very scenic route that is commensurate to the area which will leave you breathless as every turn is a postcard.

Photo-taker paradise. You can't go very far without stopping to see the amazing views. This can make driving a bit dangerous, as you can't take your eyes off the scenery.

This is a great national forest.

A variety of items you can see.
It is expansive and great vistas. From Sedona to North of Flagstaff, changes in elevation and temperature.

A great place for artists.

a must visit.

But there it is. Pines and a lot of vegetation this East Coast girl cannot identify. It gave me a whole new definition for a forest. This is your government at work, so get your tax money's worth and visit the places we have set aside.

I spent a long time at the visitor's center. The restrooms were spotless and that helps us all. I was able to recharge from the long stressful drive from Phoenix. I am not used to the congested high speed traffic and the elevated roads with unbelievable drops on the side of the lanes. I was not comfortable riding as a passenger. So, the stop at the Coconino National Forest Visitor's Center seemed to save my whole day. I learned a lot from the information offered inside the center. I enjoyed the information inside, the photo opportunities offered by the beautiful surroundings, snacks and hydration choices there and a wonderful little gift and souvenir shop inside the center. I purchased many items I was grateful to find there that will be treasured memories of my stop and the forest. Outside the visitor's center was ample parking and a chance to stretch one's legs and enjoy the beautiful place with beautiful staff. My questions were answered by friendly people who were as excited about the location as I was. Well done Coconino National Forest Visitor's Center staff and rangers. Your place was the highlight of my ten day once-in-a-lifetime trip! Thank You!
