Most of that route is easy, some parts go up and down mesas, but paved the entire way (from what I remember from our trip 12 years ago, lol) I am asssuming you will drive the entire route through the Hopi Mesa's to US 89 then north to Page.

We really enjoyed this road. Stopped and took a tour of Walpi, one of the very old Hope villages. ALso visited the Hopi Cultural Center on Second Mesa.

Take it slow, and enjoy the trip!

The top speeds will be 65 MPH in the 'wide-open' areas, some areas, corridors, towns, villages, crossings, will require to slow to 35 mph.

Since your on State highway 264, you'll in several jurisditions re: Speed, State of AZ, Navajo Tribal, Hopi Tribal, and maybe County Sheriff.

Slow and steady, don't go much higher than speed limit, domestic animals, a horse, a cow, a dog can be a nuisance, yet realize too many houses and/or homesteads have turn turn-outs to their homes, traffic could be entering or exiting as well.

It is a scenic route to take, your looking at least 3+ hours of drive between Gallup and TUba City, AZ.

That's a good road plus a scenic and interesting route. Check out the Hubbell Trading Post at Ganado along the way.
