The 56-mile High Road to Taos is an incredible scenic, winding road through the Sangre de Cristo Mountains between Santa Fe and Taos. The “Low Road” runs through the valleys along the Rio Grande. It winds through high desert, mountains, forests, small farms, and tiny Spanish Land Grant villages and Pueblo Indian villages.
Scattered along the way are the galleries and studios of traditional artisans and artists drawn by the natural beauty. It has been recognized by the state of New Mexico as an official Scenic Byway.
