This is the longest video that I’ve ever uploaded to YouTube. The reason I uploaded this full version of the drive is because I know that there are some people out there who were like me initially, researching this drive to see what it’s really like before planning a trip.
I want to provide a very real time view of everything to expect on this drive. I want people to be prepared and know what they’re getting into. I also want to share the fun with those who may choose not to go and see this beautiful place, but would like to watch it from the comfort of their own home.
This road is 26 miles and it is a one-way drive. The road is very narrow and there are steep drop offs. One thing you can be certain of is that you will be awed and captivated by all of the scenery and the beauty in this place. This is perhaps one of the most beautiful canyons that I have ever visited. I love how the terrain changed throughout the drive and I was never bored with any of the features.
My friends and I stopped along the way to take pictures and explore some of the sites like the old mining town of Leadfield. We also saw some petroglyphs which I did not include in this video. It was just an amazing place all around and I would totally do it again. Thankfully, I did not have to drive this time. My car probably wouldn’t have made it on this road.
We had a caravan of three cars including a RAV4, a Subaru Crosstrek, and a Subaru Outback. All cars made it through with no issues and we had a fun time. I hope you enjoy this wonderful adventure.
