We're planning a road trip from Sedona to GC, Page, Zion, Bryce, and back. I notice that the estimated travel time for Cottonwood Canyon Road from Tropic to Page is really long, compared to the mileage. Can someone describe the drive for me? Is the scenery worth the (probably winding) road? Or am I better off going right back down 89, which is how we are going up from Zion. Also, could anyone suggest an alternate route back to Sedona whereby we wouldn't be backtracking all the way. We plan to go up 89 most of the way. How about through Fredonia, Jacob Lake via 67. Looks on the map like the road ends in the GC? We don't mind slow speed limits and curvy roads, but we don't want something that's going to turn our hair (more) gray, either! Any help is appreciated. Thanks. I love these forums. Everyone is so helpful!
