While attending the 100 year HD Anniversary in Milwaukee in 2003, I ran into these two biker-guys from Germany. They'd come for the birthday bash but as soon as it was over they were headed to Arizona for the sole purpose of riding the Coronado Trail. I immediately put the CT on my "to-do" list, and did it for the first time the following year. Sweepers to the north, undulating pine-lined straights in the middle and technical twisties to the south.

My recommendation, no matter your riding level, is that you try to arrange your route to do Hwy 191 from south to north. Doing so will allow you to stay off your brakes and enjoy the scenery more, and there is plenty of that! I
