This is a very nice ride, I did it a year ago and made a fewstops to look over into the canyon. The roads are good and views are awsome. I would recommend if you are in the area to make a point to make this ride.

What a great ride but not great road surface. This ride has it all, good curves and scenery. I did not notice any services so be sure to stay fueled up. This route has some great water falls.

Your right, a great road. Especially during fall color around the first of November but be careful if you are hard on the throttle, police & forest rangers will pull you over (they are every where) and the speed limit is very slow.
Keeping two wheels down,

road was in good shape and light traffic. had a couple of surprises too, like a rock the road was built around. the only negative was the overlook parking areas were gravel which made it interesting driving on and parking. but all in all a great ride.
