Turquoise Trail, Albuquerque: 8 reviews and 14 photos
Los Cerrillos, which means little hills, is a village located 27 miles south of Santa Fe just to the west of the Turquoise Trail (State Highway 14). Cerrillos was established in the 1870?s during a gold, silver, lead, zinc and turquoise mining boom but only has about 250 residents now. It was once seriously considered for the capital of New Mexico; however, Santa Fe obviously won out. Rio Galisteo and the railroad run through it. The Diamond T Hacienda is a local guesthouse.
