If you’re looking for the perfect way to see the gorgeous aspens in New Mexico this fall, then you need to head out on the High Road to Taos. The High Road to Taos is one of the most scenic drives in the state and well worth your time. For even more adventure, you can continue your journey on the Enchanted Circle Drive, which loops you through some of the most beautiful communities in northern New Mexico, including Taos, Questa, Red River, Eagle Nest, and Angel Fire.
Proximity to the High Road to Taos, the Enchanted Circle Scenic Byway, and so many more things in northern New Mexico, is one of the best things about our Bed and Breakfast in New Mexico. We’re conveniently located just off the High Road to Toas, about 35 minutes north of Santa Fe, in the charming village of Chimayó – itself a worthwhile destination!

Though most drives in northern New Mexico during the fall months will be scenic, few are more beautiful than the High Road to Taos. There is a more direct route between Santa Fe and Taos, but the High Road to Taos Scenic Byway offers a slightly slower and much more scenic route between the two cities.
Not only are the 105 miles of the High Road to Taos a more beautiful route, but they also offer access to some of the most charming mountain towns and attractions between the two cities. The entirety of the High Road to Taos Scenic Byway can take up to 2.5 hours – but that also depends on how much you stop along the way. We encourage you to stop often, as this historic route has much to see!
From gorgeous mountain vistas and plenty of golden aspens to admire to charming villages to explore, we think you’ll love every second of the drive on the scenic High Road to Taos as it skirts along and through the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. As you pass through the mountain towns, take note of New Mexico’s Spanish Colonial roots on display. Some of the communities you should consider visiting along the High Road to Taos include:
As beautiful as the High Road to Taos is, as we mentioned, it’s just one of the many gorgeous scenic drives in northern New Mexico. You’ll find another unforgettable experience on the Enchanted Circle Drive. If you take the entire drive, you will have driven around 84 miles around northern New Mexico – a journey that will take about 2.5-3 hours – again, depending on how many times you stop.
The Enchanted Circle drive circles Wheeler Peak, the highest peak in New Mexico. As you travel around the peak, you’ll visit several charming communities in northern New Mexico, just like on the High Road to Taos. Though the Enchanted Circle Drive is beautiful any time of year, it’s breathtaking in the fall when the bright golden aspens pop in color against the evergreen Piñon Pines. Below are a few highlighted reasons to drive along the Enchanted Circle drive this fall.
