Follow this road through Bernalillo and Algadones until it ends and turn Left onto Main Street. Take Main Street to the end and turn Right onto Hagen, this road will take you back to I-25 and on the other side is Casino Hollywood.
SceneryThis is a section of the old Route 66 and goes past the tram, Sandia Casino, Shady Lakes and follows the back road next to the train tracks through Bernalillo and Algadones.
Drive EnjoymentLots of flat straight road, some curves. Nice scenic ride
Tourism OpportunitiesSandia Casino, great food, Bernalillo has Range Cafe, great food, and Casino Hollywood is a good stop
As you begin the Northward leg of 313 you see lots of shade trees, livestock and open meadows adjacent to the wooded bosque. Try the Freight House in Bernalillo for great local cuisine and local tap beers. If you are really adventerous you can stop by Cactus Brewery in Bernalillo where brick oven pizzas and local beer are served with game meat..(Elk, venison, etc). Continuing north on 313 surrounded by the beautiful Rio Grande valley mesas through Algodones on to Hollywood Casino.
Plenty of food and beverage options, outstanding scenery, and rural and native pueblo construction everywhere. Road quality is very good, Speed enforcement can be significant in the township jurisdictions, but have never been pulled over on the 2 lane 313 where passing slower traffic (if even seen) is never difficult
If you don't have hours and hours, but want a good taste of what New Mexico motorcycle touring offers, this route is New Mexico in a nutshell. Great for couples, new riders, and tourists.
