From Santa Fe to Taos the high road does not take a lot longer than the highway (low road) but is much more scenic. It is windy in places. You drive through a couple small communities (Milangro Beanfield Wars did some filming in Las Truchas). Beautiful scenery. Not a lot of traffic and I found this a pleasant drive. I... 更多
What a beautiful day! I took the high road scenic drive yesterday in thoughts of enjoying the fall foliage .. The trees are just starting to turn colors .. Instead of driving towards Dixon I decided to keep heading East into Mora , Guadalupita, Black Lake. Angel fire , Eagle Nest, Red River then ending back in Taos.. Along the... 更多
Such a beautiful drive from Santa Fe to Taos! If you can catch the High Road Art Tour it's even better.... Wonderful little villages dot this scenic road. It is easy to take a left or right anywhere and just explore some of the hidden beauty of Northern New Mexico. The High Road weaves in and out of many valleys... 更多

It's a lovely ride, but it gets promoted at far more than that. Mostly, one sees trees. Signage is kind of dicey, so if you have no map, it's a bit of an adventure.
We took the high road, which was beautiful. The first hour was beautiful and it got a little tedious for last half hour. We stopped at the first town which has a very nice Weavers/Gift Shop and an adjoining very nice gift store on the left side of road! We all bought various crafts and jewelry at very good prices!... 更多
The churches and views along this road are very interesting and worthy of photographs. Have done this trip three times now in the past four years. Always impresses and is different with the seasons but definitely worth it. Watch the road.....a lot of curves and inclines.
Took a leisurely and meandering drive on day when we did not have to get anywhere fast. The drive is through small settlements settled in the late 1700's. Roads are someplace narrow. You can smell history here.
