Rides of a Lifetime Road Trip Map
Rides of a Lifetime: Southwest
The Southwes's central point is the Four Corners: it's an area steeped in legend and mysticism, an often surreal, often desolate region where the landscape dominates your thoughts and the road seems to go on forever.
This Southwest trip starts at the Grand Canyon. With so much truly amazing terrain to cover, we planned your route to get you to the right destinations over the most epic and vehicle-friendly roads. Your cruise will take you from America's greatest canyon to the high-altitude passes of Colorado's lofty Rocky Mountain National Park, from the unreal geography of Utah's fabled Canyonlands and Zion national parks to the otherworldly back roads of New Mexico and beyond. On this trek, any place is the right place to start, so if you're renting or borrowing a vehicle at any location on or near this route, you'll be ready to go no matter where you rev up your ride for the initial time.
This is the kind of road trip you wish you could do for the first time over and over again, yet you'll always want to remember your initial journey. And you will. You'll never forget a Bryce Canyon sunrise, a Grand Canyon sunset or any day you spend rolling over these roads that seem made for a Ride of a Lifetime.
All the major Southwest attractions are covered: Grand Canyon; Sedona/Jerome; Native Indian Lands; Santa Fe/Taos; Million Dollar Highway; Rocky Mountains; Arches National Park; Canyonlands; Bryce Canyon; Zion Canyon; and so much more.
