Dirt! All the way to Santa Fe!?
« on: December 26, 2018, 08:17:38 PM »
I'm trying to get a little trip going for this January/February, I want to go from Phoenix to Santa Fe in the most "cool guy" way possible i.e. mostly dirt and trails, I've never been to Santa Fe so I want to do some splorin' up there too. Anybody is welcome and we can start working out dates and routes. All input is welcome. G'day

Dirt to Santa Fe, NM is a bit of a tall order,  especially in winter when the few passes that aren't just the highway will be snowed and impassable.   

Are you trying do avoid pavement as much as possible,  or accept the pavement and find fun side trips?    That one would be easier.      I've done a fair bit of exploring in the region - Mitch (that's his username here, and his name) probably knows that area better than anyone so he might have some tips.

I figured snow would be a problem. As much off road and snow as possible within reason is all I'm shooting for
