Flagstaff, AZ to Kanab, UT

Looking for a recommendation as to whether to take Alt 89 through Jacob Lake and Fredonia, or Rte 89 through Page when going from Flagstaff, AZ to Kanab UT.

Can't tell you about Alt 89 but we did travel 89 from Page down to Tuba City (headed to Monument Valley) and the road was fine. The road is a bit dippy in spots but otherwise fine.

Alt 89 will take you to the North side Grand Canyon entrance at Jacob Lake. It is/used to be, a scenic, quiet, pleasant drive when we drove the highway. It is designated big-rig friendly.

Gator67, for sure take the route through Jacobs lake. The scenery is awsome. When you cross the Colorado river (just before Marble Canyon) you will come to "LEE's Ferry Road", it is THE ONLY place to access the river between Lake Powell (Glen Canyon Dam) and Bolder Dam, ALL float trips start here. Just past Marble Canyon you will be driving by the "Vermilion Cliffs" - just indescribable beauty. I took the ALT 89 in February of last year, and it was well worth the drive. All the roads are very good all the way to Kanab.

Good Luck!

By all means take it, the scenery is absolutely spectacular. The road crosses over the Colorado River and is a good place to stretch your legs. There are some hills (up and down) but we made them in our gasser. We often talk about taking that route again when in the area.

Antelope Cnyn

if you have never been to a slot canyon ... I suggest that you visit Antelope Canyon just outside of Page ... here is a slideshow from our most recent visit ...

It is on Navajo land ... they provide guided tours in downtown Page ... they will pick you up right at the RV park if you make arrangements ahead of time ... the RV park will adjust your departure time if you are on a tour ...
