Written DirectionsCross the river next to Home Depot in Durango, then turn left on La Posta Road. (CR213) Follow the river for 15 miles, right at the "Y" until you get thrown back onto 550S. Travel south approximately 9 miles on 550S into New Mexico then turn right on CR2900 at the bottom of hill, careful or you'll overshoot it. Take 2900 all the way to the ruins in Aztec, turn left, and it will once again bring you back to 550S. Double back over the antique bridge in Aztec. (West Chaco). Turn right on Main Street. Turn right on CR3000 / Rio Grande Avenue. This will take you all the way to mid-town Farmington.
SceneryThese county roads follow the La Plata river all the way from Durango to Farmington. Twisties, great asphalt, incredible scenery. You'll wish you brought your fishing gear!
Drive EnjoymentFairly new asphalt. A few DANGEROUS decreasing radius curves you REALLY need to slow down for. Take this road EASY the first time you ride it and survive Deadman's Curve.
Tourism OpportunitiesThe scenery is all this route's got other than one farm/produce stand. No roadhouses, groceries, etc. But anything you need is in Aztec.
Motorcycle Road Additional infoAt rush hour this beautiful, scenic back route is often FASTER than 550 through innumerable stoplights / traffic in Aztec and north Farmington.
