Tucson to Holbrook

We will be making this passage soon and need some advice on the route to take.

One way is to use AZ-77 and US 60 out of Tucson. That seems to be a very mountain like road -- about 240 miles.

The other obvious route is to use I-10 to just south of Phoenix and then take AZ 87 to I-40 -- about 350 miles.

My Garmin DEZL 760 recommends the longer route for RVs and the shorter route for autos.

Our rig is 35 ft., and we pull a Honda.

I will appreciate any comments on this passage.

By going Az-77 US 60 you will see some very pretty country but you will go through Salt river canyon. Low gear down hill with hair pin turns and then up hill noreal hair pin turns. Doable with your rig. The I-10 to Az 87 , you will clime out of Mesa to P Payson then again at Pine or Strawberry to get on top of the rim Again pretty country. Another way is I-10 Az 87 Az 260 Az 377 . On this one you clime out of Payson to Forest Lakes then rolling hills to Heber and on to Holbrook. All of these are doable with your rig. There is some road work on 260 east of Payson to Christopher Creek. Hope this helps.
