It is only a little over a mile to the Chaco entrance from here.

Entrance to Chaco Culture National Historical Park

Pavement starts again at the entrance. From here it is about 1.5 miles to the Visitors' Center.

Looking Back on CR-7950 at Chaco Entrance

The washboarding makes driving on CR-7950 slow. When I left and drove straight through, it took me 33 minutes to travel the 16 miles to get back to CR-7900.
