Auto Tour & Trail MarkersBrannigan Park Rd., Parks, AZ
Today there is a walking and biking trail about 3/4 mile long starting at this gate and following the 1931 alignment to the point where it meets the 1941 road again. There's room to park where this gate and sign are located.
Heading west from the trailhead the paved road makes a gentle "S" curve with a cattle guard at the west end (at the far left in this photo). Just west of the cattle guard you come to the abandoned right-of-way of the 1941-64 alignment that was built to avoid the climb over Fortynine Hill. This photo is facing east from just west of the cattle guard. That alignment was split in two by the construction of I-40. Parts of the 1941-64 alignment were buried under I-40 between Bellemont and (approximately) milepost 179 where this alignment would have met the freeway.
