Taos, NM

Run to Taos Pueblo

Most streets in Taos are not ideal for running, but one scenic exception is the route to Taos Pueblo. The views of the surrounding mountain range are stunning. Plus, you’ll get to visit one of the oldest continuously inhabited communities in the United States. The adobe structures of Taos Pueblo are a UNESCO World Heritage site. To get there, simply follow the Town of Taos Highway north for ~2 miles. It’s relatively lightly trafficked, and there is a slight shoulder bordered by scenic ranchland. For an even quieter route, runners can also take Star Road or Little Deer Horn Road all the way to the Pueblo.
