Cimarron Pass to Angel Fire

Have a trip planned in August from Houston to Angel Fire NM

Was talking to a buddy today and he said I was crazy to try to RV through Cimarron Pass

Honestly I havenít even charted a path yet, as Iíve been busy

Should I avoid this ďCimarron PassĒ or is it not that bad? Iím in a 45í tag pusher with a Jeep Wrangler in tow

Please see the link below in this same forum. I am leaving for Angel Fire this Saturday from Nacogdoches, TX. My planned route is in post #13.
I haven't seen anything about Cimarron Pass and do not see it listed in the "Mountain West Directory". What highway is it on? I will go thru the town of Cimarron on Hwy 64, but don't know about a pass there. I have never been there, so I'm asking for my benefit also. But if it is not listed in the "Mountain Directory" of passes, it may not be near as bad as your friend suggests.


Anyone know about this pass?

You're not going to take your RV on Cimarron Pass! It's an awesome, fun 4-wheeling drive in the San Juan mountains of Colorado. It's no where near Angel Fire.

It's a different place, you'll go through the town of Cimarron, NM.

From Cimarron to Eagles Nest it's a windy road but very doable if you pay attention and take your time.

Couple of notes from experience;

1. If you go through Amarillo, go north to Dumas then west to Dalhart. The Boys Ranch rd out of Amarillo is hilly and windy.

2. Come in to Angel Fire from the east, not the south. Take I-25 to Springer then Cimarron to Eagles Nest and down. Last time we were there I spoke to someone who came in from the south, he said it was horrible and he would never do it again.

Oops.... never heard it called Cimarron 'Pass'. Hwy 64 is OK.
