Looking for the best route from Apache Junction, AZ to El Paso with a 36 DP and toad. I’m looking at 60 to Globe, 70 to Safford, then 191 down to I-10.

Can I avoid the Winslow to Payson type route this year without going west to I-10 like I’ve done in the past without adding a day to the route

I did do 87 from Winslow down to Payson and then down to Phoenix with the N Bush Highway to the 202 last year and one section of that I do not want again. That was the section down to Payson. I’ll go back to Holbrook and take 377 to 260 to Payson.

Will I avoid the very narrow curves like last year going the proposed route. Will take options if there are any.

Thanks for the help.

it's been a while but as far as I can recall the only issue is a climb on 60 approaching Globe. no big deal. beyond that the remainder is unremarkable.

update: found these videos for you on YouTube.

Why not just take the 202 to I10 and be done with it? Unless you're looking to sightsee, the fastest, easiest and least hassle is the 10.

I have been taking that hywy 60 route for years. Its a nice drive and i believe I actually save about 75 miles vs taking the 202 to I-10 and then east to EL paso

If you are not in a hurry and want to see scenery, just stay on 70 to Lordsburg instead of taking 191 south.

To clarify a little my destination is actually just north of Tampa and from Gilbert it doesn’t make sense to go back to I-40 which I like better than I-10

This is what I did a year or so back -- a very easy run, no major climbs/descents. 70 is a lot easier than the traffic mess on I-10, so deleting a few miles of that was a bonus.
