Possible new tow - Forest Rd. 330 off hwy 107

Researching a possible new tow - Forest Rd. 330 off hwy 107.
On our way back from Gray Hill, NM Mike and I decided to explore a dirt highway 107 that lead south from hwy 60 at the town of Magdalena, NM.
Hwy 107 going to Forest Rd. 330 is so good a person could easily drive 60 mph. (dusty)
I-25 starts in Las Cruces. Exit 114 is where hwy 107 joins I-25.
I have yet to find out who own the land on either side of the road as Forest Road 330 heads WSW to the National Forest.
As FR 330 goes up into the mountains it becomes four wheel drive, one lane road. There is not much traffic for this reason.
I'm praying the perfect section of tow road goes through BLM land. I'll go check it out at the local office here in Las Cruces.
If open to the public this tow road would also come under the heading as perfect, unobstructed, no fence, no trees, no power poles, seldom third party, and pinch me I must be dreaming.
More information to follow.---------
