Escape To Rio Grande Gorge For A Beautiful New Mexico Nature Scene

It doesn’t take much for us to find a reason to take pleasure in New Mexico’s stunning scenery. The state’s beauty is simply divine and, to be honest, escaping into that beauty is surprisingly easy. However, one spot that is fairly out of the way, accessible year-round, and jaw-droppingly gorgeous is the Wild Rivers Recreation Area at Rio Grande Gorge.

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. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

It is located approximately 14 miles from Questa via State Route 378. The recreation area is open year-round and day-use fees cost $3 per vehicle. For additional details about the Wild Rivers Recreation Area, trails, and other activities, visit the department’s website or Facebook page.
