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. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
