This Terrifying Northern New Mexico Road Trip Will Send Chills Up Your Spine

We already published a haunted road trip through Southern New Mexico, but we figured that anyone living in or passing through Northern New Mexico should have the chance to be terrified too! So we’ve created a trip through the northern part of our state that ties together a series of truly creepy places.

The loop takes 9 hours and 23 mins to drive (not including stops) and covers 492 miles. Many of the locations on this journey are haunted hotels so there are plenty of places to stay along the way.

While we can’t guarantee that you’ll encounter ghosts, you will definitely find gorgeous scenery, scrumptious food, hotels with a long and often bloody history, and perhaps that certain prickling feeling on the back of your neck.

We’ve included a link to the Google Map for this road trip right here. Since you can only select a limited number of destinations on Google Maps, the first stop in each place appears on the map, while you’ll find the addresses for any subsequent stops in the same city in the article itself.

Rejoin I-40 and return to Albuquerque to complete your trip.

Have you had a paranormal encounter at any of these places? Are you bold enough to take this drive? Let us know.
