Does anyone know if Hwy 88 is completely paved. From what I could find online they were in the process of paving it but not sure if its done. Thanks
Since you'll be in the area, take Hwy 60 east out of the greater Phoenix area to Safford. Go a few miles east of Safford, turning left onto Hwy 191.Ok that settles it. Will look for another route home...thanks for the help...
Great suggestion..Since you'll be in the area, take Hwy 60 east out of the greater Phoenix area to Safford. Go a few miles east of Safford, turning left onto Hwy 191.
Fuel up in Clifton / Morenci, then continue north on The Coronado Trail, formerly known as the Devil's Highway, which makes the Dragon tame in comparison.
You won't be disappointed.
If you're taking US-191 northbound...it's worth the ride, but that 90-odd miles is a good 3+ hours to accomplish.Hwy 191 does look like a nice ride. I think we will be looking at that for our ride back. Then we can head back to Oklahoma via 60 instead of taking I40, which I have done numerous times, and will be taking it to Kingman Az on our way to Bakersfield. Kingman to Las Vegas for the evening. Then thru Death valley and finally catching 178 info Bakersfield. It looks like 178 follows the Kern River.
Thanks for the suggestions. It should be a great ride.
If he needs to travel faster, he could take 77 out of Show Low through Snowflake to Holbrook and catch I40 there.If you're taking US-191 northbound...it's worth the ride, but that 90-odd miles is a good 3+ hours to accomplish.
If you overnight in the Safford, AZ area, you'll have a long day, but you'd make it to Kingman in a day of riding.
From Springerville, take AZ-260 east, through Show Low, back onto AZ-260, stay on AZ-260 @ Payson, then switching to AZ87 just past Pine, AZ, turn onto Lake Mary Rd, take that to Flagstaff.
From there, a short buzz down I-40 to Kingman.
