County road, CR-7900, meets US-550 about 3 miles southeast of Nageezi, NM, and about 15 miles northwest of Counselor.

Start of CR-7900

From here it is 21 miles to the entrance of Chaco Culture National Historical Park.

Turn West at the Intersection of CR-7900 & CR-7950

CR-7900 meets CR-7950 five miles south of US-550.

Start of CR-7950

From here it is 16 miles to the entrance of Chaco Culture National Historical Park.

Start of Unpaved Part of CR-7950

The paved part of CR-7950 only lasts 3 miles. Much of the unpaved part of CR-7950 is washboarded. You may have to drive 20-35 mph on much of it. You can see Fajada Butte in the center background from here.
