Antelope Pass

Antelope Pass

Antelope Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.875m (6,151ft) above the sea level, located in Coconino County, Arizona, in the United States of America. The climb is very steep climbing up 1,000 feet in 3 miles with hairpin turns.

The road to the summit is called State Route 89A. It’s paved and hilly. At the pass the road zigzags along a cliff edge just outside of Bitter Springs. The road over the pass runs south-north from Bitter Springs towards Lake Powell. Along the way are some lookouts with stunning views.

It has a few narrow parts. You’re winding around the side of a hill, and it is an incredibly steep and curving road. Trucks and vehicles with long trailers have to use low gears due its steepness. Watch out for rocks.
