It was truly a beautiful drive but the dirt portion can be intimidating. Gravel portions were fine but the dirt portions are just that... dirt. Fortunately the weather was sunny and the rain a few days before kept the dust down. Would NOT want to...More
Highway 126 sends its way through the Jemez Mountains High Country, linking a maze of improved and unimproved roads, streams, vistas, and campgrounds.
Start your trip at the Forest Service Office located on highway 550, and you will find literally thousands of unimproved roads and...More
Driving through this area was amazing. The views were incredible. We were told about the drive by a local, which made it even more enjoyable, since it was not planned. We saw some local wildlife. The whole experience was quite a treat.

If it hasn't been raining, it's a pleasant, but sometimes bumpy, drive through a great deal of forest land. There is some ongoing construction work, as a good part of the highway (around 12 miles) is still unpaved. We drove in an SUV without any...More
Ok...so everyone always wonders about this road. It can and is closed if the winter is bad. We just traveled today and hit muddy spots, because of warm winter temps, but our 4 wheel got us thru no problem. It is a beautiful very secluded...More
