Beautiful but deceptively hilly ride. At the low point you are approximately 2500 ft lower than in Flagstaff. On the day we rode, the temperatures were about 20 degrees hotter at the low elevation and we were pretty uncomfortable. We would have been happier if we started where the ride leaves US 89 (about 25.6 miles in on this route).
Distance: 72.9 miles, 3,972 ft. elevation gain.
Getting There: Start outside Flagstaff on US 89.
Roadway: Shoulder of US 89 and two lane roadway.
