Peru Creek Rd - passenger car?

Postby IHikeLikeAGirl » Tue Nov 27, 2012 2:44 pm

So, my faithful Jeep Liberty has fallen ill recently and, due to conflicts, won't be fixed any time soon. :(

Can I take a passenger car to the Peru Creek Rd parking lot, just outside of the town of Montezuma?

I'm assuming I can, but such assumptions have gotten me into quite the pickle in the past....

As long as you are talking about the parking lot right off of Montezuma Rd you should be fine. Paved all the way to the parking lot.

Too bad your Jeep is sick - I drove all the way up the 4wd road today. A bit slick but driving to 11k on that road in November is sweet!

Ah so those were the fresh tracks we saw today! Yes, was slick, even just our boots slid a little. I was amazed at how high your tracks went.

Oops, sorry for the confusion, I actually drove up the Peru Creek 4WD road, not Santa Fe.
