What a beautiful way to drive to Taos. Leave time to stop in Chimaya and the other small towns along the way.

Beautiful scenery along the way, though as you get closer to Taos, it looks less desert-like and more forested (reminded me of Montana or central oregon). Roads can be really winding. Fun to make a quick stop in Chimayo to see the church/sanctuary. Some interesting little towns along the way, though lots of poverty.

My husband and I were invested in sight seeing on the way to Taos and this route seemed interesting.
Aside from our stop in Chimayo the scenic views became quite monotonous and me being a nervous passenger found the rolling hills unsettling.
It took us over two hours to get there. We had lunch and toured Taos for about an hour and were back in the car again. The lower road was much smoother and we enjoyed the views of the Rio Grande River. Overall Taos was much farther from Santa Fe with similar galleries shops and architecture. I don't think it was worth the trip.

We were on a road trip of Arizona and New Mexico and waned to do as much sightseeing as we could to get a good taste of what there was to see. We drove the high road to Taos from Santa Fe and made a loop back to Santa Fee, which took most of the day. We felt our time was really well spent, taking our time seeing all the beautiful scenery. There were lots of turn outs which were good, both to see the sights and to get out of the way of all those people who want to drive well over the posted speed limit. (These two states seem to be full of drives that just ignore any speed limit signs.) We have been on a few driving trips in Arizona and now New Mexico, thousands of miles actually, and I must say there is so much to see if you are not from this part of the country.

This is just a road thru little sleepy villages and some views of the mountains but nothing really special or scenic.

It's a nice ride and we did walk a few miles back on a couple of forest service roads that were very nice.

We took the high road in the morning - the views were breathtaking! Don't take it if you are in a hurry and don't want to stop. We really enjoyed it and felt that it was the best way to see the mountains.

The historic churches on this route are really spectacular. And the views breathtaking. Download the route and points of interest before setting out as internet service is very spotty.

Loved this road in the morning. Great spots to pull off and take pictures. Plenty of art galleries and local artisans to stop and explore.

Nice drive from Santa Fe to Taos. Goes through small towns with lots of photo opportunities. Some local art/produce for sale along the way.
