The High Road to Taos is very much off the beaten path. It is not touristy at all which makes for a nice drive. The 90 km long scenic road traverses areas of high desert, mountains, forests, small farms, and tiny Spanish Land Grant villages and Pueblo Indian villages.

This scenic byway was recommended to us by many people so we decided to take it from Santa Fe to Taos and back to Colorado! I don't think the extra time on this road is worth it.

This road is fun in a fast car. But its even funner when you have time to stop by and see all the sights and visit the people. I will never forget it!
My aunt drove us yesterday and it was beautiful. There were a few small towns to stop in and also several areas to pull over for scenic photos. We took the high road on the way to Taos and the low road on the way back. Both views are breathtaking.

I read the reviews, but decided to take the ride to see for myself. It was ok. Some of the views were nice & we got to see how some of the locals lived. The low road was better to me, but that's just me.
We drove thru right after an arctic blast but roads were well maintained and the day was sunny and clear . The views were spectacular as the snow glistened from every angle. Words cannot describe the beauty of this landscape on this day .
