I’ve taken this drive many times, living nearby, I took it again today and stopped to take some pictures.
Also Hiked around Big East Lake and found a few geocaches.
It's a nice drive.

Very scenic drive! Personally I think it's better than the Alpine loop

Drove this last year in the fall hoping to see the fall colors. Missed the peak of the color by more that a week. Still a beautiful drive

Beautiful ride. Took the loop trip when we came out to climb the highest Peak in the county. A long wonderful day.

Beautiful area. Roads are very well maintained, plenty of pull offs, and impressive views. Take a moment to stop and make the short walk out to Devil's Kitchen. This is a must do in the fall!

Beautiful ride in car or motorcycle during spring, summer and autumn. Road is well maintained and is listed as a National Scenic By-Way. In Autumn, the fall tree colors are incredible. In the winter it's a great snowmobile trail. The snow road is still groomed from Salt Creek Canyon to Payson for easy sled riding.
