DescriptionSpring Valley Road Scenic Drive passes through a pinyon-juniper woodland as it enters the forest from the west. Within a few miles, the vegetation changes to ponderosa pine and the north side of Sitgreaves Mountain and its larger neighbor to the east, Kendrick Mountain, come into view.
The road then angles south through Spring Valley, maintaining good views of Sitgreaves Mountain all the way. This area contains a number of small but scenic aspen groves. South of Sanderson Pass, the road traverses the west edge of Government Prairie with outstanding views of the San Francisco Peaks to the east, near Flagstaff.
Spring Valley Road is the local name for the portion of Forest Road 141 that lies north of I-40. The west end intersects with State Route 64 about 5.5 miles north of I-40; the east end joins historic Route 66 at Parks.
