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.

This is a must ride. Great road. Tight twisties. Beautiful views if you have a chance to take your eyes off the road. But once I reached Silver City, I wish I would have turned around and rode it again. Instead went west on 180 and up 12. 180 was just ok. And 12 was a conplete bore.

What a surprise! This road was made for motorcycles, BUT you'd better like LOTS of hairpins and curves. A few troublesome black snakes in the sweltering sun, otherwise a reasonable surface. Was 101 leaving Caballo, so most of the ride was HOT Mid-May. Go for the ride, not the destination. Otherwise you will be frustrated by the time you get there...lots of 10-15 mph curves. Beautiful scenery!
