Written Directions

Clines Corners is a the crossroads of I-40 and NM 285. On the way south the road turns through Encino and Vaughn and finally leads to Roswell, NM.

Scenery

The road leads over rolling hills through a typical southwest desert. This trip is excellent in the late spring, if the desert received moisture in the late winter. In this case the desert blooms.

Drive Enjoyment

The road is mostly straight with few curves. The highway is in good condition with 4 lanes. Sudden wind gusts can create challenging riding conditions.

Tourism Opportunities

Clines Corner itself is a tourist/souvenir shop with gas station and restaurant. Vaughn has the last gas station before Roswell. Roswell itself is the alien capital of New Mexico. The alien museum is worth seeing. Southeast of Roswell a state park with lakes, Bottomless Lake, offers a beach and camping. The town itself has an exquisite steak house called Cattle Baron.

Pretty much long, boring and windy. I only ride through here on my way to somewhere else...usually Texas.
