Pinto Canyon Road Condition?
« on: February 12, 2020, 11:30:39 AM »
Has anyone driven Pinto Canyon Road from RR170 to Marfa lately? I'm looking for a recent condition report for our park visitors.

This probably doesn't help you but as of last November(3 months ago) it was fine. We drove it north to south with no problems in 2wd. There is one hill near the south end that we descended that had to be taken very slow but do-able.  Great drive, great views, some ruins, sorry for the old info.

Thanks again for the time you and Amber spent with us the other day.

Thanks for this.
Planning on bringing the wife out this way in April.  This is the only dirt road I'm planning this trip.
