Hi! I am moving back to Ann Arbor, MI from Phoenix. I have a 2002 CRV and will be towing a 4x8 Uhaul trailer, so I would like to take the flattest route I can. When I moved out here I came down through Flagstaff, but would like to avoid that elevation Any advice would be great! Thanks.

The route my husband took out to CA back in late Feb is reasonably flat.

In reverse, try Phoenix/Albuquerque/Oklahoma City/St. Louis/Ann Arbor.

You aren't going to avoid all hilly travel but that may be a route to check out. Liz

Instead of going through Flagstaff, go east through Payson... much easier on your car, still a few hills and such but nothing like it is from Bumble Bee to Flagstaff...from there go through New Mexico, Oklahoma ect..

If you truly want to avoid 7000 ft, you will have to go out of your way. That will involve taking 10 to Las Cruces, NM. Then taking US 70 into Texas, you can then take I-27 to Amarillo, pick up I-40 to OKC, then I-44 to St Louis, I-70 to Indianapolis, take I-69 to Fort Wayne, then US 24 to Toledo, OH. Then I-475 around Toledo's west side to US 23, which goes straight to Ann Arbor. I will note that US 24 and US 23 are both freeway for the sections you will use. So the only non freeway is US 70

This was posted almost nine years ago. I think the OP figured out how to get back to Ann Arbor by now.
