Routes to San Juan from Phoenix

All three routes are pretty much the same time-wise, however it all depends on you preference:

  • Flagstaff to Shiprock, NM is a long drive across the Indian Reservation and is about the same time-wise if you live on the west side of Phoenix
  • Flagstaff to Gallup is the easier drive in my mind because you are on Interstate all the way.  If you live on the west side this is a great option
  • Payson to Holbrook is a pretty drive and shortest if you live on the east side of town.
