U.S. Route 64 (US 64) is an east–west US Highway in northern Arizona and New Mexico in American Truck Simulator. It runs from US 160 in Teec Nos Pos to US 87 in Raton. In real life, US 64 runs 2326 miles (3743 km) from Teec Nos Pos, AZ, to Nags Head, NC.

The Steam achievement "Forest Shortcut" can be unlocked by driving on a dirt road forming a shortcut between two segments of US 64.

The US 64 split through Farmington

Course[]

US 64 begins at its intersection with US 160 in Teec Nos Pos, AZ, and shortly after its beginning enters New Mexico. The highway here descends into Red Wash, where the massive volcanic neck named Ship Rock can first be seen, and rises to the town of Shiprock, where it intersects with US 491 and crosses the San Juan River. After running along the San Juan for a ways, the highway reaches Farmington, where it splits in two: US 64 Business runs through the town's central business district on Broadway and Main Street, while US 64 Bypass, intended for through traffic, runs along the southern edge of the town on Murray Drive. The mainline routing of US 64 follows the bypass.

The section between Farmington and Interstate 25 is considered among the most scenic routes in the game. Leaving Farmington and Bloomfield, where it intersects with US 550, the highway crosses the colorful tablelands of the Colorado Plateau, which transitions to forest; somewhere in this forest the highway crosses the Great Continental Divide. The highway soon meets with US 84, with which it runs concurrent for a stretch before splitting off just south of Tierra Amarilla. The highway then crosses the Tusas Mountains through Carson National Forest, afterwards entering the Rio Grande Rift at the southern end of the San Luis Valley, where it crosses the Rio Grande Gorge via a bridge simply named after the gorge; this bridge, standing 600 ft. over the river, is the 10th-highest bridge in the US. Out of the valley the highway reaches the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, a large range of the Southern Rocky Mountains. The highway first crosses the Taos Mountains, a subrange of the Sangre de Cristos, via Palo Flechado Pass, a tricky route with several switchbacks; the largest of these switchbacks can be bypassed with an unmarked dirt shortcut, which, after driving it for the first time, gives the Forest Shortcut achievement. The highway then enters the valley of Cieneguilla Creek, where it passes through the town of Eagle Nest below many snow-capped peaks, a mountain to the west being Wheeler Peak, the highest point of New Mexico. The highway then traverses the Cimarron Range, another daunting, yet scenic, route. After running through Cimarron Canyon the highway exits the mountains and currently terminates at Interstate 25.
