Swift Trail (State Hwy 366) is a 35.2 mile one way scenic drive with 6,400 feet elevation gain. Located 7 miles south of Safford Arizona.
The Swift Trail will take you from the base of the mountain to the top of southeastern Arizona's highest "sky island" - the Pinalenos (Mt. Graham). This drive will offer you spectacular scenery from the desert floor up to a lush green mountain forest. It's like driving from Mexico to Canada in an hour and a half. Due to its scenic beauty, Highway 366 was designated a state scenic parkway in 1993. Swift Trail is closed from November 15 to April 15 at approximately 21 miles from its junction with Hwy 191 during the winter snow season.
