Show Low AZ to Tucson AZ

We're taking our first long trip in our 2012 Allegro 32 with a Honda Fit toad. Going from Tucson to Grand Canyon, Flagstaff, Cottonwood, Prescott, Payson, and Show Low. Could someone please provide information about Route 60 from Show Low to Globe and Route 77 from Globe to Tucson. Thanks for your info.

I have been a number of times SL -Globe it is 6-8 mi. of downhill at 6% grade go slow and use your gears and not the brakes. I have never driven 77 but truck drivers talk of a 8% hill and it is slow N or S. We will be going to Show Low in 2 weeks.

Salt River Canyon on 60 between Show Low and Globe is a beautiful trip however; be very cautious on the down hill. Don't let anyone force you to speed up, use low gears and stay off the brakes. Even doing this I heated up the brakes on my 32 ft Aerbus towing a malibu to the point that you could smell them pretty bad. There is a nice place at the bottom to pull over and let everything cool down while you take some pictures.
