The byway also accesses picnic areas (watch for Big Bend) and hiking trails (p.s. Monster Rock refers to a craggy outcrop with a killer view – not the trail’s level of difficulty). For mountain vistas at a different pace, tour West Wind Farm Vineyard & Winery, a fourth-generation homestead where family members produce small-batch wine and serve lunch with live music during Café Saturdays.
