Red River, NM

Driving to Red River, NM 

Red River is easy to get to from any of these cities:

Albuquerque, NM   160 miles Amarillo, TX   285 miles Dallas, TX   650 miles
Denver, CO   260 miles Lubbock, TX   416 miles Oklahoma City, OK   520 miles

Driving from Albuquerque?  Take I-25 through Santa Fe towards Taos (if you're not planning on seeing Santa Fe you can take the Santa Fe Relief Route - NM 599). Take Hwy. 285/68 through Espanola and the canyon that runs along the Rio Grande into Taos.  Once you get through Taos, head north on NM 522 to Questa, then make a right on Highway 38 towards Red River.

Driving from Dallas? Starting from I-35E N, head north towards Denton. Take TX-183 W towards Irving/DFW, then merge on to TX-114 W towards Grapevine. In 39 miles merge onto US-287 N toward Bridegport/Decatur. Take US-287 N/I-40W through Wichita Falls to Amarillo. Go through Amarillo then exit Soncy Road/TX-335 Loop. From the loop take the Tascosa Road/ RM-1061, and stay on 1061 for 30 miles. Turn right on US-385, then merge on to US-87 towards Dalhart. You’ll cross into New Mexico and head towards Clayton. Turn left onto US-412/US-56/NM-402/MONROE ST towards Springer. Once in Springer stay on NM 21 through Miami and Philmont Scout Ranch to Cimarron, then left on US-64. Once you reach Eagle Nest, turn right on US-38 and head on in to Red River.

(Warning - this is the quickest route, but takes you through some really rural areas outside of Amarillo. To drive through more populated areas go from Amarillo to Dumas, then Hartley to Dalhart).
