We traveled the road before noon on a weekday in April, so we were nearly the only people on the road. Very nice views!

Great fun drive if you have the guts for the narrow road climbing the mountains. Worth the trip just to see the scenery around Taos.

Very pretty but pace yourself! The round trip from Santa Fe to Taos is a long day. The miles are not that great but the roads are narrow in places and there is lots to see. We had planned to visit Taos Pueblo but it...More

We went the low road to Taos & High Road home from Taos. We love to see the various communities and stop and shop at the artist studios and community centers we have visited on the various studio tours. So beautiful!

This road goes through several small villages, past the Nambe recreation facility on Nambe lake and then through the National Forest to Taos

We drove the High Road between Taos and Santa Fe. It’s a lovely, leisurely drive through quintessential New Mexico scenery. We much prefer the backroads to the highways. Take your time and enjoy it.

If you're going to Taos, this route is mandatory! It's prettiest if you drive it from Santa Fe to Taos although going the other way around works, too. The views are magnificent, the small towns interesting and a trip back in time. Take the river...More

We took the road for scenic views but found it has many small villages with art and other crafts along the way. Galleries galore with great local artists

The “high road” is to be savored with stops along the way. The more expedient route along the Rio Grande is nice too, but lacks the charm of the road less travelled.

Definitely not the quick route but well worth the extra time for the experience. Several small towns with art galleries and local cuisine to enjoy. Stunning panoramas that are worth much more than the price of admission (free). Also this is the route to the...More

A quick google of altitude for the high road lists the highest altitude as 8581’. That’s higher than I thought. Still fun. 😀
