Driving Directions

Go north of Taos on NM Highway 522 or south from Colorado. Look for the small green “Lama” township sign, which is just before our turnoff, immediately north of the 15-mile marker coming from Taos, or about 4 miles south of Questa. Turn east (toward the mountains) on Taos County Road B-014 or La Lama Road, drive over the cattle guard and follow the road east for about a mile. The road will curve to the left; continue for 1/2 mile and turn right on Upper Lama Rd. Then turn right at the next fork onto Lama Foundation Rd. Continue straight for about 2 miles, then follow the road as it turns left; you’ll encounter some sharp S-curves, go through them for about a mile and a half then follow the sharp left uphill until you reach the Lama Foundation.
