Superior to Roosevelt is very scenic (although it has the roughest trail of the whole AZT), and Roosevelt to Pine is also excellent. Once you get north of Pine, the quality in scenery drops a little because it's just pine trees with fewer expansive views. Really, it's hard to go wrong with any part of Superior to Flagstaff when that includes the Superstitions, Four Peaks, and the Mazatzals.

Yes the section through the Eastern Superstitions from US 60 (Picketpost TH) to Roosevelt is a good 50 miler. South of Picketpost is great, too, with some fantastic new trail just north of the Gila, and maybe easier access near Florence. It's a long drive around to Roosevelt Lake.
