While geographically called "Taos Mesa", most everyone in Taos refers
to the uplands just to the west of the valley land as Blueberry Hill -
though there is not a blueberry bush to be found. Blueberry Hill
Road traverses the entire ridge from US 64 by the Old Blinking Light
intersection at the north to its south end by the Los Cordovas intersection.
The road actually forms a bypass around Taos. Millicent Rogers Road
marks the other primary road in this zone. The hilly portions of
this narrow road rest in the Blueberry Hill zone, while the valley land
is part of Upper Ranchitos zone.
The east side of the zone overlooks the Taos Valley land and town
while the west features views over the
Lower Las Colonias valley.
This highland has wonderful "Big Sky" views in all directions especially
towards the mountains by Taos Ski Valley. Sagebrush paints
the landscape a lovely gray green and dominates the ground cover.
Because of the views and easy access to both the north and south
sides of Taos, Blueberry Hill tends to feature upscale homes.
Several large tracts belonging to the Taos Pueblo are undeveloped and
are likely to remain so.

The Taos MLS uses just one zone for this region:
BLUEBERRY HILL (07A)
Since the boundaries of Blueberry Hill are very easily defined
geographically and this is one zone, there is no need to differentiate
neighborhoods within this region.
A couple of roads leading from Blueberry Hill Road are not on the
ridge but in the Arroyo Seco Creek drainage or other drainages within
the hill. Arroyo Park and Night Hawk Trail provide examples of
this. Though they are not on the ridge, their only access is
through Blueberry Hill Road and they are considered to be part of this
