This route is very easy to find and follow. Just start out in Socorro, NM and take US 60 west all the way to then end point of Springerville, AZ. Along the way you'll go through Magdalena, NM and Datil, NM and Pie Town, NM and Quemado, NM and then Springerville, AZ. If desired you can continue on to Show Low AZ which is still on US 60.
A nice ride through remote a maintain landscape with ranches, meadows, with more elk than people! Temperatures range from 32 degrees to 70 degrees and the area enjoys 350 sunny days a year. You'll travel through parts of the Cibola national forest as well.
The road is in good shape. It is a mountain road so expect some twists and turns but for the most part you can cruise at 60 mph. Get gas when you can as there are only a couple of towns with gas.
