Took the road to Chimayo from Taos. Prayed for Mom, who was seriously ill at the time, in the sanctuario. Came back to a fully recovered Mom!

Going from Santa Fe to Taos can be done in a loop. Go the high road, visit Taos, cross the Gorge and then come back down. You’ll get a better view of the variety of scenery in the Northern NM Rio Grande area.

We always go to Taos on the Low Road, because it is quicker, but the High Road is our choice for returning. This route has some great vistas and goes through a lot of smaller interesting towns like Chimayo. Driving in the hills is a...More

Returned to Taos after a day in Santa Fe via the High Road. Interesting scenery that changes often, and a glimpse into the truly rural areas of NM where ordinary people are living in modest homes. The road is well marked so that GPS nav...More

From Chimayo into Taos, one of the most scenic drives in the West, IMHO. The views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains are beautiful. The villages are picturesque and not overly "touristy". Be sure to stop at the chapels along the way-impressive for their longevity...More

Just did this drive and was enchanted by the natural beauty of the terrain and I even got to see some late season snow but roads were cleared, I highly recommend this amazing drive!

If you are heading to Taos from Santa Fe taking the high road route is a very nice drive. There are many stops along the way is you so choose. There is very little traffic so the trip is quite enjoyable .

We enjoyed the drive, but it was a bit long with few places really to stop. The low road back was also nice.

This is a lovely drive to or from Taos. There are several small villages or towns to stop and explore. Much better than the main road.

A quick google of altitude for the high road lists the highest altitude as 8581’. That’s higher than I thought. Still fun. 😀
