TALK TO THE HIGH ROAD
The 56-mile stretch of the High Road to Taos, rises and curves through the Sangre de Cristo Mountains between Santa Fe and Taos.
With a long history of exchange between these Spanish towns and the area’s adjacent two pueblos - Nambé and Picuris - will not only inspire you by its beauty but also by the undiluted nature of the centuries-old traditions that are still practiced in the region today.
Visit many historic churches along the route, including Santuario de Chimayo on the south end of the bypass and Francisco de Asis Mission Church on the northside in Ranchos de Taos. The villages of the High Road: Nambé, Chimayo, Córdova, Truchas, Ojo Sarco, Las Trampas, El Valle and Ojito, Chamisal, Picurís, Peñasco, Llano San Juan and Llano de la Yegua, Vadito, Talpa, Ranchos de Taos.
When the trees turn yellow and the autumn sky deepens to cobalt, take part in the popular High Road Art Tour - two consecutive weekends of open studios and galleries that draw people from all over the state and country. View art and regional handcrafts in the villages dotting the High Road all year ‘round.
