There are several ways you can get to Santa Fe from Albuquerque. The most common route to Santa Fe is I 25, however my favorites are NM 4, NM 14 and NM 41. One other highway leading to Santa Fe is US 285, it starts north from Clines Corners and requires you to travel 50 miles east before starting north to Santa Fe.
