San Gregorio Reservoir Is One Of The Most Underrated Summer Destinations In New Mexico

When it comes to summer hikes and lakes, most New Mexicans know of all the hot spots for cooler temperatures; Ruidoso and Cloudcroft are just a couple of notable examples. If you’re searching for a location that’s hidden from the crowds, you’ll want to consider a day trip to the San Gregorio Reservoir.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Details about accessing the lake and trails can be found on the U.S. Forest Service website or on the AllTrails website.
