I entered the trail going south from Rte 60 and couldn't believe my good fortune. In over 100 miles of unimagined beauty I saw only three cars. I travel all over the USA and this driving trail is one of the most beautiful I've ever...More

This scenic byway starts in the rocky basins of Clifton, climbs into the mines of Morenci, and ends in the high country of pines encircling Alpine. I rode this windy road practically in the middle of nowhere, on a carbon Trek Madone Project One bike....More

I ride this road almost every year. It is my favorite highway of anything I have ridden on in Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona. Since I am from Albuquerque, I usually combine it with a trip over NM and go through Mimbres and Pinos Altos....More

We did this road from N to S, on a cool, potentially rainy day. The rain held off, and the sun came out, and we had just a fantastic ride. I had a bit of trepidation about doing it, as I'd read several reviews of...More

Left Alpine and drove to Hanahan Meadow in just under an hour. Drove from there to Morenci in about 2 hours. No hurry on the trip. Lots of cruves. I drove in 2nd so that I didn't need to use the brakes a lot. Watch...More
