Drive through high desert and forests, and see former Native American footpaths first used as horse paths by Conquistadors and prospectors, then as wagon trails for pioneers. While admiring the scenic beauty, imagine nomadic tribes of hunters, gatherers, trappers, outlaws, homesteaders, lumberjacks, and ranchers living along the byway.

Hannagan Meadow plays an important role in the Coronado Trail's history. Here, during a 1926 highway dedication ceremony, the moniker "Coronado Trail" was first assigned. The rustic 2-story log lodge and restaurant provides scenic views of the forest and adjacent large meadow which is frequented by elk and deer herds grazing at the meadow's edge, accompanied by the occasional wolf, bear, and bobcat. Trail rides, hiking, mountain biking and cross country skiing are popular activities.
