Mesa, AZ to Albuquerque, NM

Has anyone taken the route AZ-87 to AZ-260 to AZ-277/377/77 to get to I-40 East at Holbrook? What kind of roads are these and how hilly is it? This is the suggested route that we get from Google maps and from CoPilot.

We came to Mesa by way of I-40W to I-17S to AZ-101... all highway, but also a lot more miles. Just looking for thoughts... thanks!

Last spring we got off I-40 at Winslow to 87, for the conditions of todays roads not bad although I-40 has some rough sections. From Payson on down to Mesa 87 is fine. North of Payson 87 is two lane.

I live in the White Mt. area and travel that route often. Mesa has an elevation of 1,243 ft, while Heber-Overgaard's elevation is 6,627 ft. The climb up from the valley has a couple of steep areas, but nothing too bad. Winter storms can make traveling difficult, but not at this time of year. Many RV's use that route to head up to Show Low/Pinetop. I would recommend it.

We drove past there and it looked very nice. The roads getting there were somewhat rough but all in all it seemed quiet and out of the way.
