Very nice road, one of my favorites, peaceful ride in the Rockies, a few twisties near Cloudcroft Village, nice sweepers along the way, all through Mescalero Apache Indian reservation. Awesome ride to Ruidoso. Best route from South to North

Fantastic ride! Twisty roads in good shape and places to stop, eat and shop. Pretty much year round riding fun.
