the world's most spectacular roads

 

Bobcat Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 9,820 feet (2,990 m) above the sea level, located on the boundary of the Carson National Forest, in New Mexico, USA.

The road over the pass is asphalted. It’s traversed by the NM 38 between Eagle Nest, New Mexico and Red River.

 

To reach the summit, starting from Questa, the ascent is 29.48 km long. Over this distance, the elevation gain is 1097 heightmeters. The average percentage is 3.7 %. There is a steep 4 mile climb up to the pass but only the first two miles from Red River are hard. Then there is a lovely 13-mile descent from Bobcat to Eagle Nest through the beautiful Moreno Valley and it's mostly downhill the entire way.
