Amarillo to Chama,NM

Planning a trip in May that will take me to Chama and beyond. Just need some advice on the best route from Amarillo Tx to Chama NM. Looks like I will go to Clayton then 56/412 over to Springer at the intersection of I 25. Get on I 25 for a very short distance and then West on Hwy. 58 over to its intersection with Hwy. 64. Then take 64 all the way thru Taos and on to Chama. Never been thru that route and just wondering if thats the best route in your opinion or do you have other ideas? I will be pulling a 35 ft. 5th wheel and would appreciate any info and tips from someone who knows these roads and what I can expect as far as grades and curves. Someone said getting thru Taos was kinda narrow or a little crowded. THANKS A BUNCH.

Suggest I-40 West to Clines Corners US 285 North to I-25 South. Exit in Santa Fe, St Francis Drive North, US 285/84 through Santa Fe to Espanola. Follow 285/84 over the Rio Grande. Just north of Espanola, stay on 84 to Chama. You will encounter city traffic from Santa Fe to Espanola. Springer to Taos to Chama crosses several passes and is winding.

The information that rivolivia gave you is the rout that my wife and took two years ago good roads.

I would like to make a subjection about a campground to stay in if you do stop in Chama we were just passing thru but wound up staying 30 days at the (Rio Chama RV Park http://www.riochamarv.com/)
and you must ride the train (Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad http://cumbrestoltec.com/history/)
the best trip is Chama to Antonito by motor coach; return by train.

We are planning another trip to Chama this June by the way if you are there July 4 the hole town has the best fire works show I have every seen.

Have fun and be safe.

If it is ok I would like to ask if any one has taken the rout that you ask about (Hwy. 64. Then take 64 all the way thru Taos and on to Chama) if the roads are good I my like to take it. We will be pulling a 34' 5 wheel also.

We will be starting our trip from Trussville Alabama it is along way to Chama.
