Pueblo, CO to TAOS

Spending the night in Pueblo, CO and will be heading towards Taos, NM tomorrow. Am interested in going 160 to 522 into Taos or 160 to 285. Am in a 38' gas RV towing and am concerned about climbs. How bad are the climbs on either route?

Thanks

There's nothing major to worry about ... Raton will be your biggest hill. Both routes are very do-able. Don't forget to stop at Taos Gorge! Have fun! \ken

Thanks for the reply... If I take 160 west in Walsenberg, I will miss raton pass altogether. So, the climb through the mountains 285 is not bad? is 522 better or ?

Sorry ... last time I did that section I went through Philmont and Cimmaron. Guess my choice would be US285 ... prettier drive. Takes you by Fort Garland, the Cumbres & Toltec station in Antonito, and then puts you on the right side of Taos to see the Rio Grande at the gorge (on 64). There are no major climbs at all after La Veta Pass (about 9300 feet). Good quality 2-lane road the whole way. \ken
