High Road to Taos Tours and Activities
Read MoreShow Less
The 56-mile High Road to Taos is one of the scenic routes running through the American southwest, connecting Santa Fe with Taos. The road was built in 1975 and has been designated an official Scenic Byway by the state of New Mexico. While you could make the trip in a few hours without stopping, that defeats the purpose of taking the scenic route. Spending an entire 7-8 hour day on this road – including time spent at stops along the way – is not uncommon.
Some of the points of interest along the High Road to Taos are the pilgrimage site of Chimayo, the adobe houses of Truchas, the Carson National Forest, the 18th-century Spanish colonial church in Las Trampas, and the 18th-century San Francisco de Asis Mission Church in Ranchos de Taos.
The High Road to Taos is actually several highways that have been connected under the Scenic Byway designation. Many of the towns along the route are known for their traditional art.
