    Default Can you get from here to there on dirt?

    I'm trying to figure out if I can get from the east mountains to San Antonio, NM on dirt. Going through/near Mountainair, Claunch, and possibly Bingham, then on over to San Antonio.

    Looks like there is a large percentage of that route on dirt, but I'm just eyeballing GE and GMaps. Nothing more detailed.

    Brian1, Sceep, moto dual sport guys, anyone?

    I haven't spent much time on dirt roads in that area of the state but I would say it is very possible. I was just on some dirt roads near Bingham last month and that is a neat area. I do know there is dirt roads between the old ruins (near Mountainair) and there. I think you can probably stay on dirt roads and parallel Hwy 380 to get closer to there than Bingham as well.

    I did it last summer.

    East Mountains to San Antonio NM on dirt? Can it be done?
