Arizona 89

Anyone taken 89 between Salome/Congress (I-10) and Prescott in a big rig? Looks like a snake on the map. How is the climb?

I've never seen anything big on that road. Climbs to over 6000 ft. and is a snake up topside! Fun on a motorcycle! I would take it if I needed to but I used to drive buses and such.
Nasty sometimes in the winter.

Sent you a private email - but just in case you don't receive.....are you going to Prescott or leaving it? There are 2 roads, one is NOT recommended for trucks/rigs, the other is fine-can give you details as we travel that way to our old home in San Diego.

From Congress to Yarnell there is a cilmb of 9 miles 7 & 8 %.
From Wilhoit to Prescott it is not recommended for anything over 30 ft. Many hairpin turns of 15 mph.
A better route would be Kirkland to Skull Valley, I believe its county rd. 15.
