A 52-mile mostly unpaved loop through the Sierra Madre, past old mines, rushing rivers, dense forest, excellent hiking trails, and a lake. This loop drive starts in the two small adjacent towns of Encampment and Riverside. It makes an excellent day trip with everything from great views to fishing and wilderness hiking. Along the way are plenty of historic sites to add further interest. Most of this drive is composed of the officially designated Sierra Madre Scenic Drive, also known as the Sierra Madre Auto Tour. The self-guided tour has numbered stops along the drive that describe sites of natural or historical interest.
