NM Highway 603 is not paved!
Last September, 2015, it seemed like a good idea to take a direct route to Pie Town from Fence Lake to avoid going all the way to Quemado. Two recent New Mexico Road maps clearly showed NM Hwy 603 as paved. As you can see, not only is it just a gravel road, but it also turns into a mud bog with any rain! Be sure to have four wheel drive if you attempt this route in anything but dry weather!
