Golden loop

New Mexico’s Enchanted Circle a quick, colorful autumn tour
The loop in Northern New Mexico takes travelers through Taos, Questa, Red River, Angel Fire and Eagle Nest.
Travelers can head out from Taos and take in scenery from Kit Carson National Forest, the Sangre de Cristo mountain range and the Moreno Valley.
The Enchanted Circle loop can be driven in just a couple of hours, but there are plenty of places to stop along the way.
Colors along the Enchanted Circle usually peak in early October.
