There are several. One is Oatman grade on old 66 in Arizona.

Harry, I've been on that road on a bike. Sure is nice.
I'm looking forward to taking Il rt 31 from Aurora to the trolley museum in South Elgin. Not long, but pretty. Plus all the roads in Fermilab. Just me the Bison and coyotes.

Steve, I have traveled that road with my T. Silver creek road from Kingman to route 66 just north of Oatman is a neat one some say a little rough.

Steve & Dean - My wife and I drove that section of Rt.66 thru' Oatman with a 34 ft. Class A motor home a couple years ago! Hey,...the sign said "NO TRUCKS",......it didn't say "no motor homes"! Let's just say,.....we had a memorable "experience"!

(No wonder those donkeys in Oatman looked at us like we were crazy!)

Some great roads in our national parks. A nifty T road in Coral Pink Sand Dunes. https://www.flickr.com/photos/bruckzone/9430945242/in/set-72157634912638277

On the way up to Brian Head. https://www.flickr.com/photos/bruckzone/9428996325/in/set-72157634912638277

The road and tunnel in Zion are amazing. https://www.flickr.com/photos/bruckzone/9420958075/in/set-72157634903482601

The loop road around Yellowstone is fantastic too.

It's not really a highway but is a rural country road that goes through the center of Green River, Vermont.

We are blessed with the most beautiful scenery here and this little village is five miles from the shop and is on my road test loop.

The dam in the photo below is the last timber-framed dam in the state.

Trans-African Highway

You probably had road conditions closest to what T's were used to driving on. Constantine, maybe it's just me but that looks like an exceptionally bad place to break down: not the remoteness so much as I can almost feel the lions back in those scrub-tree things licking their chops if you bring the T to a stop.

It's probably paved now but in 1972 the Al-Can highway was billed as 1523 miles of the best unimproved road in the world I didn't drive it in a T but it was a memorable trip in the '49 Chevy in February.. if it is in the group My Ex didn't burn I'll post pictures later.

Silver creek road runs from North of Bullhead City to route 66 I was headed to Kingman.
This is another neat road riding the ridge.

Someone must mention the

Road to the Sun in Glacier Park.

This was a great one, but it's been ruined (paved). Federal Highway 1 in Baja California, 1970. This is one of the smooth parts.

Been many years since I toured the UP of Michigan during the peak color season. Doing it in a Model T is on my bucket list.

Gary...I think the U.P. probably rivals the entire New England area for beauty in both foliage and shoreline. We have some friends who "summer" up there, come home to the crappy winter in Ohio around early Nov. to avoid the crappier winter in the UP!! It's on my bucket list to take the T up there also. I hear you can drive for hours on end and not ever meet up with another car. Haven't been there for almost 40 years. Would love to get back there.

The UP is awesome. The wife and I drove our Tudor up there in October of 2008 when our daughter was going to school in Marquette (NMU). The color was breathtaking. We spent that saturday touring from one waterfall to the next. 7 waterfalls and 140 miles later we called it a day and took in a hockey game. We need to go back because we just scratched the surface of what there is to see there.

Seth, you're quite right; the tall grass and bushes means a 500+lb male lion could be 30ft away and you'd never know it. Great stuff.
