“watch for speed trap near mile marker 27”

Ranked #7 of 100 things to do in Taos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 8, 2013

going north there's a place where the speed limit drops to 45mph, just over the taos county line. With the beautiful views it's a trap for the unwary.

While the "low road" has wider lanes and higher speed limits than the "high road" we still found it challenging to drive it at night. We spent the day in Taos and then traveled back to Santa Fe that night. We did not enjoy the night driving at all.

twists and turns through the mountains down to the river. Pull into the rv park and drive back into some scenic areas.

YES- Taos to Santa Fe not the other way around. I enjoy the views much more on the Low road as opposed to the high road. Take the fast way to Taos and the slow low road and ENJOY> The views are majestic and you will feel like you are floating in the clouds on your way down. Pack some great music for this trip.

Whether you opt for the High Road to Taos (~ +1hour than Low Road) or the Low Road to Taos, you will be exquisitely treated to sights, sounds and views beyond compare.
You will understand the allure of this space for so many artists -- Ansel Adams, Georgia O'Keefe to name just 2. Scores -- countless others -- have been affected by these roads for many years, and yet there is no time: it is a timeless journey.
Enjoy the High -- and -- Low life!!
