Grand Canyon to I 25 in CO
 
I have been looking for a route with minimal mountain driving. Would like to take 64 and have looked at google satellite. While there appears to be some mountains they don't look too bad. Can anyone tell me what to expect? Hate to back track just to stay on the interstates!

Hi Folks,

Not sure of which route you plan on taking/hope to take, but, if you want to use AZ 64, head south on AZ 89 at the east end of the park toward Flagstaff, then pick up I-40 east through AZ and NM to I-25 north in Albuquerque. That's the "flatest" way with a minimum of mountains on the entire route. That may be WAY out of your preferred travel route, however.

An alternate is to take AZ 89 north to join US 160 east toward the 4 Corners, then take highway 163 and 191 north toward Moab, UT and connect with I-70 east. There are mountains on I-70 between Vail and Denver, but not too bad, although I say that as a long-time resident of Colorado and drive the mountains frequently.

A few more details, such as where you're coming from and going to as a destination, may help us provide more information that would help you plan a route.

Have a fun trip!
