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. 21 miles is at the end of the pavement and is where the turn-off for the Shannon Campground is located. During snow events, the road may be closed temporarily at a lower elevation, as several gates exist along the road before the 21-mile mark.

Gate Policy: If a gate is closed upon arrival, leave it closed after you go through. If it is open, leave it open. Leaving a closed gate open may put cattle in danger. Closing an open gate may cut them off from water. Please be respectful, leave gates as found.
