Visit the High Road to Taos Art Villages website

The High Road to Taos ends (or begins, depending on your perspective!) in Ranchos de Taos, three miles south of Taos Plaza.

The southern end of the High Road can be reached from Santa Fe. Take US Highway 285/84 North. Just past Pojoaque Pueblo's Cities of Gold Casino and the turn to Los Alamos, go right at the light onto State Road (SR) 503 East. Follow this two-lane road as it begins in the Pojoaque (pronounced "poh-WAH-kay") River Valley and winds through lovely old Territorial adobes and idyllic horse pastures.
