    SW corner US recommended winter routes

    Considering a winter 3-5 day trip (an RT and a GS) around the Las Vegas-Phoenix-LA region. Any suggestions on routes appreciated. Prefer 2 lane, scenic, curvy, paved, off-the-beaten-path roads. As if that needed to be said. Thanks for your suggestions.

    nothing specific, but be advised that NW AZ has elevation to it, and can easily get snowed in. Especially on the more m/c friendly routes.

    Great Winter AZ:)

    I ride AZ Winter all the time, snow too, but mostly great riding without the white. Wear GOOD Winter apparel, electrics TOO. N.AZ gets to 7000'+ elevation around Flagstaff and all about those parts. TIPS; US66 from Kingman to Flagstaff, a must, Loop from Williams N. to GCanyon, Cameron(GREAT LUNCH STOP) at Cameron Trading Post and back S. to Flagstaff, Flagstaff S.via 89 through Sedona and Jerome,AZ are another MUST ride for anybody serious about seeing the area. Phoenix is an hour++ away from Jerome...PS; I NEVER miss an op to eat at Cameron Trading Post, when in the area. Can be cold getting there BUT soooooo worth it. Item; "Navajo Taco" is my draw. TIP, get the smaller one! Randy

    Forgot one?

    Oatman AZ., a living ghost town on US66, West of Kingman is very cool! Coming S.from Vegas, use US95 to Laughlin and East from there to US66 and OatmanAZ. Worth the extra effort. FEED the wild Burros, living in the streets...Randy
