Santa Fe Scenic Byway Professional Review and Guide

"A 15-mile paved route from the heart of historic Santa Fe up into the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The Santa Fe Scenic Byway climbs from 7,000 feet in elevation at the city center, up Tesuque Canyon, and into the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The two-lane paved road has narrow shoulders but frequent turnouts. Traffic can be heavy and may include vehicles, bicyclists, and joggers.

Special attractions: Palace of the Governors and Santa Fe Plaza, Tesuque Canyon, Pecos Wilderness, Hyde State Park, far-ranging views, high elevations, colorful autumn foliage, Santa Fe Ski Area. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more."
