US Rt 89 Question

I am planning a trip from AZ to Yellowstone and have the option of going through Las Vegas to I 15 or Rt 89 north from Flagstaff to Page, AZ and Kanab,UT then connecting with RT 20 to I 15.

I am familiar with RT 89 almost to page but beyond that I would like to know road conditions, elevation changes, etc.

There is about a 60 mile difference in routes, 89 being the shorter.

Would like suggestions from anyone familiar with either route.

We've traveled 89 north of Page more than once. It's a good 2 lane with passing lanes for other vehicles. There is a 6% grade south of Mt Carmel in Utah. Get yourself a Mountain Directory, which tells you grades of highways in every state.

89 is a very easy scenic drive. Go for it!

FYI, In case you haven't been up 89 for a couple of years, 89 is closed between Bitter Springs and Page, you need to take the bypass 89T. It's a new good two lane road that starts about 25 miles south of Bitter Springs. The new road may not be on all maps and GPS units yet.
