Title: Lordsburg NM to Animas NM - Animas St, A009, A006
Post by: UltraDFW on October 22, 2019, 07:36:56 pm
Considering this as part of a NM/TX route. Anyone familiar with it? Wondering about the surface - if it's still mostly gravel (vs paved) and what kind of shape it's in?

Also wondering if anyone's familiar with local dirt/sand roads A009 or A006 that join Animas St with NM 338.

Thanks!

Yes, I cycled from Animas to Lordsburg in 2010, following NM-338 until about 2 miles before the junction with I-40 and then turning on A009 and C113. I remember A009 as a decent dirt road. You can easily inspect the surface of C113 with Google Maps in satellite view and in street view. The satellite view is dated 2019 and street view is dated 2014.
