Helper Utah to Lindsay Ok

Looking for the easiest, route from Helper Utah near Price to Lindsay, Ok. Driving a Ram 2500 Diesel pulling a 33’ fifth wheel. I just did a long tense 8% grade yesterday and I am looking for more mellow driving today. It looks like my choices are 191 to Monticello, 491 through Cortez to Shiprock, 64 to Farmington, 371 to 550 through Cuba to Bernalillo, the 25 to Abq, then I40 across to Oklahoma. The alternative is going through Colorado which seems like it would be more steep grades and curvy roads. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Does your truck have the engine brake? I-70 through CO does have some long, curvy grades but never be afraid to go slow regardless of what others are doing.

We were just in Helper at Castle Gate a few weeks ago on 191. From Helper on south, the highway is not as steep and winding as it is from the north. The route you laid out is probably your best bet. 191 south through Moab is a good road but we have not been as far south on it as Monticello since we turned east at LaSal into Colorado. You don't want to go east into Colorado if you want to avoid steep and winding roads.

We were staying at Castle Gate as well. Nice little spot. We ended up going thru Moab and Shiprock to Gallup and over to Abq. I received some timely good advice, this forum is a great tool. Thank you.

We just traveled a good bit of the route on a trip from DFW to NW Colorado.

We left DFW and traveled N to Salina Kansas and W on I-70 to the Denver area and then N to Cheyenne and over to Laramie then back down into an area near Walden CO.
When we left Walden we dropped down to I-70 and went over Eisenhower Pass and into Denver.
Going over Eisenhower pass was really a nonevent. We were very mindful of engine breaking and gearing and only had to apply brakes a couple of times. We picked up I-25 out of Denver then to Raton and Dumas then Amarillo. Kansas easily had the best roads eastern Colorado the worst. I'd recommend any of this route.

Never been the Cortez, Farmington route.
