State Route 169, also known as SR 169 and Cherry Road, is an east–west highway in central Arizona, with its western terminus at its junction with its parent road State Route 69 at Dewey and its eastern terminus at Exit 278 of Interstate 17. In conjunction with SR 69 and I-17, it serves as the most direct route between Prescott and the Verde Valley, bypassing the scenic, but dangerous mountain grades of State Route 89A through Jerome.

Despite its east–west alignment, this highway is marked as a north–south route.
