    Hi Clare:

    You must distinguish the number (singular and plural), and gender (masculine and feminine). Examples:


    • Masculine Singular

    → El vestido 'me queda largo' (The dress is too long).


    • Masculine Plural

    → Los pantalones 'me quedan largos' (The trousers are too long).


    • Feminine Singular

    → La falda 'me queda larga' (The skirt is too long).


    • Feminine Plural

    → Las mangas de la camisa 'me quedan largas' (The sleeves of the shirt are too long).

    _______________________


    You can use "Nos" when the subject (those who wear the clothing) are several people:

    • Los disfraces 'nos quedan largos' (The disguises are too long).


    Hope this helps. Have a nice day!

     

    Si es correcto. Y no es quedan, porque se refiere al camino (singular), Nos queda largo el camino, el trayecto, el viaje y todos estos sustantivos no son plurales, si lo fueran podríamos emplear quedan, pero no es el caso.
    Nos queda largo, quiere decir que está lejos.
