Stay to the right and continue into the town of Belen until you reach Reiken St. - clearly marked at a traffic light, a Discount Liquor Store is on the left. Turn left at that light and go until you reach Hwy 47 - a traffic light, a Conoco station on the right and a Fina station on the left and a directional sign indicating that Mountainair is to the right - and you know that a right turn is the direction to take.

Take it and go to the right, Stay on the Highway 337 (also known as South 14) as you wind through a very scenic drive through several old communities and dead-end into Hwy 55. Turn right (sign indicates Mountainair is that direction) stay on that winding mountain road and you will end up at the traffic light in Mountainair.

3. If you are at the Big I and you are pulling a trailer or big load - and you don't care about the beautiful scenery, just go east on I 40 to the second exit in the town of Moriarty. That is Hwy 41.
