Two Rivers Park In Ruidoso, New Mexico Is the Perfect Spot For An Effortless Hike And Picnic
Summer escapes into the mountains don’t always need to involve epic hikes or expensive cottage stays. If you’re looking for a low-key getaway for an afternoon, a visit to a park in the mountains is the perfect respite from the summer heat.
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: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
The park is open daily from dawn to dusk and is free to visit. For details about trails, renting pavilions, and special events, visit the Ruidoso Parks and Recreation website or Facebook page.
