    I will be passing thru the area soon,& I was wondering what kind of road is Hwy 76 that goes south out of San Manuel & down to Benson. I was wondering if it is paved, or good gravel road. The roads San Pedro River road, Reddington road, & Cascabel road, is the route I had in mind.

    I will be traveling 2up.

    Any input Would be appreciated.

    It is both graded gravel and paved. Done it many times on a 990 ADV, super easy.

    Fun, scenic, highspeed dirt through ranches along the river. Watch for occasional wandering livestock and an occasional sandy spot where the road washes.
