|Length||41.323 mi (66.503 km)|
|South end||NM 12 in Apache Creek|
|North end||US 60 in Quemado|
Much of State Road 32 runs through the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest. Its southern terminus is at an intersection with State Road 12 in the community of Apache Creek. From there, the road heads north, winding through the Gallo Mountains, before reaching its northern terminus in the town of Quemado at an intersection with U.S. Route 60.
When the state highways were first posted in the early 20th century, State Route 32 was originally much longer, extending as far north as Shiprock. When the U.S. Highway System was established in 1926, much of this route was taken over by U.S. Route 666 (now U.S. Route 491). What is now State Road 32 is a remnant of the former route that was not renumbered as a U.S. Highway.
The entire route is in Catron County.
