Monument Valley to Flagstaff Directions Help Please

We will be staying at MV/The View in May for one night. What would be the best route to take to get back to Flagstaff? Approximately how long time/miles is the drive?

Is there any side trips? We've already been to Canyon de Chelly, Hubble Trading Post, Pet Forest,/Painted Dessert, Sunset Crater, Metor Crater...prefer something different.

Thank you!

I think the only thing in Northern Az you didn't list already were the Hopi Mesas.

Quickest road would be 160 to 89. Not quite 4 hrs.

Have you ever been to Page? Take the slight detour via 98 to 89 and then south to Flagstaff.

If you go there Danny there also is Blue Canyon in that direction. Requires awd and high clearance and a good map or gps. It's easy to get to Coal Mine. App 1/2 mile good dirtroad to the small windmill from mm 337. There's a picnic area at the rim. No shade.
