Written Directions

Just start in Silver City, NM and take NM 152 east all the way to Caballo, NM.

Scenery

This road is great continuous hairpins with rapid elevation changes, great scenery, camping, lot's of trees. Almost no police officers. This road is hard, you'll only average about 40 miles per hour going hard, lot's of knee skidding.

Drive Enjoyment

A solid 4-star rating because of all the twists, turns, and hairpins.

Tourism Opportunities

Don't take this route for the things to do along the way ... take it for the driving experience. There is not too much to do along the way except for camping. .

Amazing road. I used it as a way to get from the interstate 25 to Silver City. I was amazed by what I enountered. I rode the Coronado Trail the next day and NM 152 is just as fun, if not more technical. Thia road is fun at the speed limit or less. Watch for any rocks on the road and look out for the cattle guards in corners or at the exit of a corner. Usually not an issue but could cause an issue if leaned over to far. Watch for cattle napping by the road as well.

Also bear in mind that there are over 100 hairpin turns on this road between Silver City and Caballo, with top speeds on a cruiser at 10 - 15 mph on those curves, and you can still scrape floorboards, and not much by way of guardrails. It's an awesome ride! Just take it slow and enjoy!
