    This is a small pull-off of the highway. The old highway and the railroad bridge are in the distance.

    Cool . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Pinto Canyon at sunset




    Pint Canyon at sunset

    This is the road south out of Marfa. Pinto Canyon ahead.

    At Marfa, two young "hippie" gals told me that Pinto Canyon is the place to be at sunset.

    I'll go at that idea, even knowing that Pinto Canyon is a glorified jeep trail that has steep rocky drop offs, is a major illegal route to Mexico and the sun set very fast in February.

    Pint Canyon at sunset. The 7,730-foot Chinati Peak on the horizon

    The road connects the towns of Marfa and Ruidosa and ends at the Rio Grande. The north 32 miles portion FM-2810 out of Marfa is paved

    When the pavement ends and the gravel,rocks and adventure will begin as the road follows the contour of the land. The portion goes through a private ranch and you are not allowed off the traveled road right of way

    I'm hoping that Pinto Canyon doesn't get paved, because for me it would just be another pretty road instead of one of the prettiest dual sport roads this side of the Rockies

    For riders adventurous enough to take Pinto Canyon Road, you are entertained with scenic vistas and a feeling of total isolation.
