Highway 14 - Turquoise Trail National Scenic Highway
Mexico State Highway 14 is a 54-mile-long state road located in
northern New Mexico. The highway connects Albuquerque to Santa Fe and
comprises most of the Turquoise Trail, a National Scenic Byway. This
two lane beauty climbs, dips, and turns through some of the most
stunning landscape of northern New Mexico. Historically, the Cerrillos
Hills provided turquoise for the people of Chaco Canyon to the north in
Hogs, the movie that is, was filmed along HWY 14 and in the classic old
mining village of Madrid. A two laner just waiting for a motorcycle.
Wind on your back, sun on your face, pressing and leaning into the
curves, putting the kickstand down in Madrid at the Mine Shaft for a
burger and music. Just doesn't get any better.
