Gila-Pinal Scenic Road: Miami to Florence Junction is a 30 mile lightly trafficked point-to-point trail located near Superior, AZ that features a river and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for scenic driving and is accessible year-round.
I took this route as a short cut and for its drive when I was driving from SnowFlake to Mesa. Beautiful country with outstanding views. Well worth the trip. Not recommended if your pulling a trailer.
