Directions to Paul's from Santa Fe
Fastest/Easiest route from Santa Fe:
Head north on Highway 285 (St. Francis drive turns into route 285 after last stop light in Santa Fe). Aproximately 8 miles north of the last stop light in Santa Fe take the #172 exit which says "Tesuque South CR73" (don't take the first Tesuque exit #169 which says "Tesuque North CR73", this takes you past the , those directions below) -the exit immediately before #172 is the Flea Market Road exit. Take extremely sharp right at bottom of ramp, go 3/10 mile then left on Route 592
**Follow twists and turns on route 592 for four and one half miles (note; at 3 1/2 miles there is a stop sign, do not go straight on the dirt road at this juncture, 592 continues to left). When you have gone 4 1/2 miles (4.5 miles) on Route 592, you'll have the choice of going straight to Rio en Medio or left to Chupadero, turn left at the street sign "Camino Chupadero" (also known as County Road 78), go nine tenths mile (0.9 mile), there is an old plank wood fence on left (not a coyote fence), then four white mailboxes at end of fence marked 92ABC (note; there is a big metal electric pole on right side of road across from driveway, new plank wood fence on left is too far, dead end is way too far) slow down, the driveway is hidden. Go left immediately after the mailboxes down paved driveway, take a sharp right at bottom to dirt driveway.
Arrival via Village Market:
Take the first Tesuque exit #169 which says "Tesuque North CR73", this takes you past the Tesuque Village Market. Go about 2.5 miles (halfway is the Tesuque Village Market, go straight past it). Turn right on route 592.
(see ** above for further directions)
For the more scenic (longer) drive:
This is a beautiful drive but definitely takes longer. Don't take the freeway at all. Head north on Bishops Lodge road out of Santa Fe (starts at the big pink Scottish Rite Temple, quickly passes Fort Marcy and Bishop's Lodge and eventually converges with 73 North. Bear right/north onto Route 73 (at El Nido Restaurant) after you pass the back of the Tesuque Village Market - on your left). urn right on route 592. (see ** above for further directions)
