New Mexico trip advice needed

Hi friends, a group of us Okies are planning to head to New Mex for a 4-5 day trip and i was looking for some advice on a good dirt loop to see the best of the state. It will probably be first of april and we will be entering around tucumcari we are guessing. Does anyone have any recommendations of some good routes/roads for the time of year? Good places to camp? Thank you

I heard there's a lot of good riding to be had in the Deming area, real friendly folks in that town too!

Unfortunately most of the good dirt in Northern NM that I am familiar with is on forest roads that get gated off in the winter. Even in a dry year like this they generally do not open until April 15.

Hopefully other folks have better info than me, but Southern NM may be a better bet.

A few questions that may help others give you better info:

What kind of bikes?

Riding experience of group?

Single track, forest roads or graded dirt?

Are you trailering out or riding the whole way?
