The Turquoise Trail travels through the mountains between Albuquerque and Santa Fe along State Hwy 14 in New Mexico. Along the Turquoise Trail, rural living and traditional communities combine with great outdoor activities, extensive history, and unique restaurants, galleries and shops. This area offers many ready-to-go Santa Fe horse properties. A convenient commute to either Santa Fe or Albuquerque, the Turquoise Trail incorporates the towns of Cedar Crest, Tijeras, Golden, Sandia Park, San Marcos, Lone Butte and the Historic villages of Madrid and Cerrillos before reaching Santa Fe, the “city different”.
Designated a National Scenic Byway, the Turquoise Trail, also known as State Highway 14, is rich with history, diverse cultures, and natural beauty. Once home to prehistoric peoples, Spanish missionaries, miners and homesteaders, their impact remains with petroglyphs, mission-style churches, ancient ruins, and architecture reminiscent of the “Old West”. The Turquoise Trail is now home to artists, horse enthusiasts, hikers and skiers. The Turquoise Trail area offers a wide array of real estate options and a true sense of community.
