Designed in 2000, the road has become an important trade route in New Mexico. The 54-miles-long highway will take you to Sandia Crest, the highest point of the Sandia Mountains where you can revel in most breathtaking sunsets you have ever seen!
On your way to Albuquerque, you will be able to explore small towns and sleepy villages that were once prosperous and busy. You will pass through Golden that was the first gold rush west of the Mississippi River but has long become a ghost city with only 37 residents (as for 2010). Make a stop in Madrid that will impress any traveler with its cozy cafes and shops.
Wise people say that a picture is worth a thousand words! So, why delay? Explore New Mexico while driving the Turquoise Trail; the route will offer you the most gorgeous and fascinating views of the state! But before starting your journey, make sure you are a safe driver with our helpful Driving Tests!
