As everyone will tell you, this drive is a must! We enjoyed the stunning vistas, the small communities along the way way, and the relaxing leisurely pace. If you can fit in a meal at Rancho de Chimayo on the way, all the better!

My niece and I drove from Taos to Santa Fe. The natural beauty is amazing. The Carson National Forest is beautiful and as you get closer to Santa Fe the scenery is even more spectacular. I highly recommend this route.

Pretty pretty drive that we decided was one with the nicest scenery. Mountains and valleys and turning into pastoral as you get closer to Las Vegas NM.

The gorge, Pueblo, Plaza and a meal are definitely doable in a day. Are you driving the loop a different day? It would be a bit much to add the drive same day.
