Old Maverick Road (02/27/2021)
Very rough washboarding, but almost too short of a road to making airing down/up worth it. Luna Jacal is worth stopping to see. Cuts drive time to the western park exit substantially, just be ready for one of the worst washboarded roads we have encountered. Standard cars should have no issue with this road, as a Prius completed the road in front of us.
River Road (02/27/2021)
What a fun road to drive! My wife drove the majority of it and loved it. The entire road could be completed in 2WD with clearance, although we ran 4H for more control while moving at a decent speed. We visited during the busy season for the park and still only encountered a few vehicles across the entire length of the road. It is worth noting that not including stop the road will take four hours to complete. The landscape changes quite a bit across the road, really keeps it fun. The road was in good condition with some washboarding in certain areas. Air down your tires and this road becomes smooth. Don't skip the Mariscal Mine and explore a little at Johnson's Ranch to dip your toes in the Rio Grande!
Black Gap Road (02/25/2021)
A nice change of pace from River Road. Much of this trail had my 4Runner off camber but nothing that tire placement couldn't overcome. The Black Gap itself was uneventful, but you could move rocks out of the way for more of a challenge. Full size vehicles could do the road but there are a couple washouts that make the trail tight. Really fun trail, highly recommend.
