The road from Agua Prieta to Naco is a bit challenging due to the trucks and relatively narrow lanes but it is flat and we've never had a problem. Crossing at Naco has never been a hassel (except once being lectured to by the customs agent about the dangers of traveling into Mexico). The road from Naco will take you into Bisbee in about 15 minutes.

If you have the time I would suggest that you stop in Bisbee. It's mountainous around Bisbee but excellent roads.While you are there, if you've never been then stop and spend a couple of hours in Bisbee visiting the galleries and museum. The road out of Bisbee toward Tucson (and I-10) goes through Tombstone which makes an interesting visit, also. A few miles from Tombstone is St. David, a prosperous mormon community, that has a beautiful monastery to visit and what must be the world smallest art gallery on the main street. The lady who owns it has a sign that basically says, "she's open when she feels like it". If she's open you'll enjoy talking with her and seeing her primitive art.
I feel like a southeastern Arizona tour guide.
It's a good way to travel, I believe.
There are hundreds of paths up the mountain,
all leading in the same direction,
so it doesn't matter which path you take.
The only one wasting time is the one
who runs around and around the mountain,
telling everyone that his or her path is wrong.
