2,100-acre to 3,200-acre lake in a spectacular setting on the Chama River at an altitude of close to 7,000 feet. Maximum depth is about 170 feet when full. Boaters can camp out overlooking the lake and at a number of scenic primitive sites on both the north penninsula and another on the west side of the lake. Popular for mid season water sports after the water warms along the upper portions of the lake on both the east and west sides of the penninsula.

El Vado Lake State Park

Lake access is easy at El Vado Lake State Park, set beneath the picturesque mountains of northern New Mexico.

Hike the 5.5 mile trail along the Rio Chama from El Vado to Heron Lake where you can spot bald eagles and enjoy the river views. With all this water there’s lots of opportunity to fish for trout and salmon or head out on your boat. There’s even boat in camping (as well as beach camping), for those who want to stay out until the sun sinks behind the mountains.

Winter time is prime time here too; with ice fishing, snowshoeing and cross country skiing, there isn’t a season at El Vado you won’t enjoy.

El Vado Lake State Park Boat Ramp

The eastern shore of the lake is the El Vado Lake State Park, featuring over 100 camping and picnic sites, and two improved boat ramps. The lake is a destination for salmon and trout fishing, as well as for boating. Unlike nearby Heron Lake, boat speeds are not restricted. A 5.5-mile hiking trail runs to the north, crosses the Rio Chama Gorge via a pedestrian suspension bridge, and then connects to the Heron Lake State Park.

El Vado Lake State Park

The stretch of the Chama River below El Vado Lake Dam has a long history of producing big fish. Back when El Vado Dam was completed in 1935, old timers will tell you that the fishing in the Chama River back then below the Dam was the stuff dreams are made of. It was routine to catch a big stringer full of big trout. Even the new lake behind the Dam produced 10-to-15 pound rainbow trout. In 1946, a 20.5-pound brown trout was caught in the Chama below El Vado Dam. That’s a state-record that still stands to this day.

El Vado Lake State Park

That fishing is a thing of the past, but the Chama River below El Vado still remains one of the better spots to catch a big brown trout in New Mexico. The brown trout are now all wild fish, having established a naturally-reproducing population in the Chama. The state Game and Fish Department stocks this area liberally with catchable-size rainbow trout. Last year, they even stocked a bunch of Rio Grande cutthroat trout. One day, I was able to catch brown, rainbow and cutthroat trout the same day.

The best way to ensure that you will have an exceptional angling experience is to hire a seasoned, knowledgeable fishing guide. These experts can show you the best fishing spots and provide you with the perfect tackle and necessary equipment to make sure you have the fishing adventure of a lifetime.

A picturesque lake set among the tall pines of northern New Mexico, Heron Lake has been designated a “quiet lake” where boats operate at no-wake speeds only, making it an excellent location for all types of paddle craft.

New Mexico

Heron also has amazing sailing, cross-country skiing, and hiking. Heron is a fisherman’s paradise with record-size trout and kokanee salmon.

Ice fishing is very popular in winter.

Several campgrounds line the shore of this scenic lake with primitive and developed campsites are available for every taste.

Heron Lake New Mexico
Heron Lake New Mexico

Wonderful lake with 6,000-acre normal surface acres . Heron lake has approximately 35 miles of shoreline. Maximum depth at the dam is 215 feet when full and 142 feet at minimum storage level (7,186 feet elevation). Lake is restricted to sailing and no-wake speed operation of motorboats.

Heron Lake is a scenic lake area that is ideal for kayaking, sailing and windsurfing, as well as fishing for record-size trout.

Heron Lake offers two major events each summer: the annual Osprey Fest scheduled in July with live raptors, a wine and cheese reception and opportunities to view several osprey nesting sites; and the Paddle Power Festival in August, a gathering of kayak and canoe enthusiasts.

New Mexico Whitewater Rafting

Heron Lake provides a takeout point alternative to ending at El Vado Lake for the La Puente Rio Chama Run (Los Ojos to El Vado Lake Run).

The normal 15 miles takes boaters through a deep wooded canyon with numerous rapids. If the start is at the NM 95 bridge there will be fences and a diversion to handle according to accounts. Off NM 112 between Los Ojos and Tierra Amarilla is a dirt road heading north that provides a low water crossing of the Rio Chama and is an alternative put in. Into the canyon there is the first rapid on a tight turn being a large boulder dividing the river called Lunch Rock and then below it the most challenging known as Big Mama Chama, a Class III strewn with boulders. There is another Class II just above Heron Dam. It is then 4 miles of Class I all the way to El Vado with then the the long lake push to the takeout.

The alternative takeout at about 10 miles for paddle craft contains a hike out with your craft that includes a stairway on a hiking trail part of the Dominguez-Escalante Trail aka Old Spanish Trail (which connects El Vado to Heron Lake) from the Rio Chama Suspension Foot Bridge.

Abiquiu Lake is the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Albuquerque District’s northern most flood control reservoir in the state of New Mexico. Abiquiu Lake sits placidly between the rugged Sangre de Cristo and San Juan Mountain ranges of northern New Mexico. At an elevation of 6,400 feet, the project rests comfortably within the Piñon Pine/Juniper life zone, and is possibly the highest reservoir in the Corps of Engineers. It is part of a comprehensive flood and sediment control plan for the Rio Chama-Rio Grande Basins. The 2,860 acre project is 1,621 miles upstream from where the Rio Grande empties into the Gulf of Mexico. Abiquiu Lake is fed a diet of cold, clear, transmountain water which is diverted from the San Juan Mountains in south-central Colorado, and piped under the continental divide into the Rio Chama approximately forty-seven pristine miles upstream from the project.

Cerrito Recreation Area Abiquiu Lake - Abiquiu New Mexico
Cerrito Recreation Area Abiquiu Lake

Towering 340 feet above the Rio Chama, Abiquiu Dam is the tallest earthen structure in New Mexico, but is dwarfed by the nearby 9,862 Cerro Pedernal Peak. This flat-topped sentinel dominates the landscape of Abiquiu, and is composed mostly of flint-a metamorphic rock which for centuries has been used to start fire-hence the name. Standing on Pedernal’s summit, where the sun on your face shines with unimaginable intensity, Abiquiu Lake appears far below as a brilliant blue opal, in stark contrast to the high desert surrounding it. Cerro Pedernal is perhaps best immortalized in the drawings and paintings by one of the region’s most well known residents-artist Georgia O’Keefe. She was profoundly influenced by the natural beauty and isolation of Abiquiu and her paintings of the Rio Chama and the dusty red and maroon foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains hang on the walls of prestigious art galleries in Santa Fe, New York and around the world.

Picnic facilities are available under the trees along the river at the Rio Chama Recreation Area. Facilities are also available with a view of the lake at Cerrito Recreation Area and the Overlook. Each site has a picnic table, barbeque, and shade shelter.

Areas available for swimming are within the Cerrito Recreation Area. The High Water Cove is closed to motorized vessels and has a gentle slope for young swimmers. The main boat ramp area has picnic tables, shade shelters, barbeques, and a smaller cove restricting motorized vessels.

A bass fishing vacation trip to Lake Mohave Arizona 4-19-2019. Great trip!

Lake Mohave on the Arizona/Nevada is amazing with 240 miles of shoreline, spreading 67 miles from end to end, with Cottonwood Cove Resort & Marina located right in the center. It begins at Davis Dam in Bullhead City, Arizona and is just 14 miles east of historic Searchlight, Nevada, only 45 minutes north of Laughlin and an hour south of Las Vegas.

Smallmouth Bass Fishing

The 67 mile long reservoir covers approximately 30,000 surface acres to a maximum depth of 120 feet. There are three marinas with launch ramps, two in Arizona (Willow Beach and Katherine’s Landing) and one in Nevada (Cottonwood Cove). There is also a launch ramp at Princess Cove on the Arizona side near Katharine’s landing. Camping is available at Cottonwood Cove and Katherine’s Landing. Shoreline camping is permitted. Campers should carry out their trash and provide for adequate sanitation.Both narrow and shallow compared to Lake Mead, Lake Mohave lies between the Black Mountains to the east in northwestern Arizona, and the Eldorado and Newberry Mountains to the west in southern Nevada. Most of the lake’s length lies within the steep, narrow walls of Black, Eldorado, Painted, and Pyramid canyons.

Enjoying a cup of coffee and watching the sunrise paint the landscape with color.

So – you’ll need to be up bright and early, and as you might well have guessed, the sunrise time will change depending on season and location in the world!  I always like to arrive at least two to three hours before the sun rises just to set up and for peace of mind.  I’ve managed to almost miss them in the past due to not doing much planning and running around looking for locations so get there early!

Once at the location, if you’ve not done a recce before, have a look around and find your best spot – it’s always worth a walk around and taking some long-exposure test shots to get an idea of framing and foreground features. Once you’ve got a rough idea, it’s time to get that compass out!

Lake Mohave Arizona is only a short days drive. Good fishing for Bass, Trout and Stripers. Houseboating, kayaking or touring the lake and Colorado River by Personal Watercraft. Plenty of great hiking and camping locations.

Lake Mohave’s 240 miles of shoreline can be enjoyed year ’round as days are almost always sunny. The terrain surrounding the lake varies from sheer cliffs of multicolored rocks to sandy beaches and secluded coves.

The 67 mile long reservoir covers approximately 30,000 surface acres to a maximum depth of 120 feet. There are three marinas with launch ramps, two in Arizona (Willow Beach and Katherine’s Landing) and one in Nevada (Cottonwood Cove). There is also a launch ramp at Princess Cove on the Arizona side near Katharine’s landing. Camping is available at Cottonwood Cove and Katherine’s Landing. Shoreline camping is permitted.

Santa Fe Bandstand is a free summer music festival on the Santa Fe Plaza and at SWAN Park on Santa Fe’s Southside. Brought to you by Outside In Productions, a nonprofit, community-based group established in the spring of 1995, to bring free, live performances, presentations and workshops to people confined to shelters, residential treatment facilities, nursing homes, correctional facilities, and any other institutions or human services programs where people would otherwise not have access to the arts.

Santa Fe, New Mexico’s capital, sits in the Sangre de Cristo foothills. It’s renowned for its Pueblo-style architecture and as a creative arts hotbed. Founded as a Spanish colony in 1610, it has at its heart the traditional Plaza. The surrounding historic district’s crooked streets wind past adobe landmarks including the Palace of the Governors, now home to the New Mexico History Museum.

What can you say, Bryce Canyon is amazing. If you have only a short time to visit there are lot of great view points to enjoy but if you have the time, go hiking into the canyons its simply amazing place to see. Either way you wont be disappointed its just simply an amazing landscape.

Bryce Canyon is not a single canyon, but a series of natural amphitheaters or bowls, carved into the edge of a high plateau. The most famous of these is the Bryce Amphitheater, which is filled with irregularly eroded spires of rocks called hoodoos. Perhaps every visitor to the park will spend at least some time marvelling at its four main viewpoints, all found within the first few miles of the park: Bryce Point, Inspiration Point, Sunset Point, and Sunrise Point. Between April and October a shuttle service is operated in this area of the park to reduce congestion.

Bryce Canyon National Park lies on the eastern edge of the Paunsaugunt Plateau in south central Utah. Bryce Canyon National Monument (administered by the U.S. Forest Service) was originally established on June 8, 1923 to preserve the “unusual scenic beauty, scientific interest, and importance.” On June 7, 1924, the monument’s name was changed to Utah National Park and it was transferred to the National Park Service. On February 25, 1928 Utah National Park was changed to Bryce Canyon National Park. Subsequent legislation enlarged the park to its current size of 35,835 acres.

Bryce Canyon National Park is a scientist’s laboratory and a child’s playground. Because Bryce transcends 2000 feet of elevation, the park exists in three distinct climatic zones: spruce/fir forest, Ponderosa Pine forest, and Pinyon Pine/juniper forest. This diversity of habitat provides for high biodiversity. Here at Bryce, you can enjoy over 100 species of birds, dozens of mammals, and more than a thousand plant species.

The canyons and plateau of Bryce Canyon National Park are home to many animals. Park boundaries mean little to the migratory hummingbirds, nesting Peregrine Falcon, Rocky Mountain Elk and Pronghorn which daily cross through the forested plateau and barren amphitheater. The search for food and water leads them to the best place to find sustenance and shelter. Many animals share habitats. Ebb and flow of populations is interdependent on all the members of the wildlife community.

Balloons over Angel Fire is a fun, high altitude, family friendly event held every June in the beautiful mountains of northern New Mexico. Balloon Glows and Mass Ascensions without the crazy crowds and costs.

Watch a field of hot-air balloons at sunrise as they gracefully float up into the cool morning air of the Moreno Valley. Balloons Over Angel Fire is one of the few high-mountain hot-air balloon events in the country. Learn how the balloons work, talk to the pilots, take lots of pictures and spend a day weekend enjoying the laid-back pace of Angel Fire.

Angel Fire is a village in the Rocky Mountains of New Mexico. It’s home to Angel Fire Resort, with ski slopes and terrain parks, plus a summer mountain-bike park and zip line. The Enchanted Circle Scenic Byway passes the Vietnam Veterans Memorial State Park, which is home to the Vietnam Veterans Peace and Brotherhood Chapel. Farther north, Eagle Nest Lake is ringed by mountains and is stocked with salmon and trout.

The Pecos River originates high up in the Pecos Wilderness Area of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains just north of Santa Fe, NM. A handful of tiny streams loaded with small browns, cut-bows and cutthroats flow into the Pecos above Cowles. Below Cowles the stream becomes a small-medium river ranging between 10-25 feet wide as it tumbles into the Pecos Box, one of two canyons stretches.

Leaving the town of Pecos traveling upstream for about 12 miles to the community of Tererro, the Pecos River follows NM63 and is heavily fished near the campground. But, if you can find an open spot on the river, fish it! The Pecos River cuts through private property in many places along the way.

There is finally some open water above the town of Pecos! While it is still cold up there, fish are being caught on small nymphs in the deep pools. Villanueva is always a good bet if it has been stocked recently.

The Rio Pecos is perhaps the most central location for anglers seeking the greatest array of fishing opportunities.

The very best rainbow and brown trout fishing on the Rio Pecos is found between Terrero and Cowles. The section just above Terrero is best fished by beginning at the Terrero General Store (parking across the river along the road at Holy Ghost Campground) and fishing upstream. The upper canyon, also known as the Pecos Box, is accessed by hiking in from the parking area along the river just above Mora Creek Campground.

Cowles is the ideal jump-off location for day or expedition trips into the Rio Pecos. Beattys Flat, Pecos Baldy Lake, Stewart and Johnson Lakes, are all a day’s backpack from Cowles. Horsethief Meadow, up Trail 288, and much of Panchuela Creek, keep you close to great stream fishing on Cave and Horsethief Creeks.

Fishing in the Rio Pecos Wilderness is about small streams and alpine lakes. The growing season is short, so fish eat whenever they get the opportunity and whatever floats by that will fit in their mouths unless, of course, they see an angler looming above the stream.

In the backcountry, anglers should carry just one box of flies and most of them should float. Don’t worry about nymphs unless you fish the lakes, in which case a couple of small nymphs and Woolly Buggers will see you through. What’s most important is for your flies to fit in one box.

After spring run-off passes, say, during the latter part of June through early August (the former more likely today), March Browns are the hatch of the day. New Mexicans call these flies Red Quills. These mayflies come off in huge numbers and are the No. 1 mayfly on the Pecos. The nymph resembles a size 12 to 14 cream to natural Hare’s Ear. The adult fly is more grayish than red, a close approximation tied by substituting an Adams’ muskrat body with Hare’s Ear dubbing.

Rainbow trout are quite abundant in the Rio Pecos, but wild brown trout are perhaps the biggest draw.

The first dozen miles of the Cimarron River (from Eagle Nest Lake to Ute Park, New Mexico) are known for fine trout fishing. Stocked trout include rainbow and brown. The river is maintained by the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish at a trout density of approximately 3,000 fish per mile, although water flow can vary between 2 and 50 cubic feet per second.

There is 8-10 miles of public access in the Cimarron Canyon State Park.

The Cimarron River is technically a small tailwater that fishes and looks more like a mountain freestone stream. The water features include riffles, pockets, bend pools, undercut banks, beaver ponds, drop-offs, runs and everything in between. These water characteristics, along with a dense aquatic insect population, make the Cimarron one of the best wild brown trout fisheries in the Southwest. New Mexico Game and Fish does stock rainbows throughout the Cimarron.

The Cimarron Canyon State Park has three maintained campgrounds with tent and RV sites. The small communities of Eagle Nest and Cimarron are the closest towns with basic amenities of restaurants, places to stay, gas stations, groceries and fishing licenses. The larger towns of Taos, Red River and Angel Fire offer more amenities but with a little longer drive.

The best time to fish the Cimarron is from May through mid October. Key hatches include Golden Stoneflies, PMDs, Tricos, Caddis, BWOs, Midges and Terrestrials.

Rio Grande Gorge, where a few dozen Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep released in 2006-2007 have multiplied to a population of 280 in 10 years.

Bighorn sheep were absent from the gorge until 2006, when the Taos Pueblo released 23 onto the landscape. The Department of New Mexico Game and Fish followed with the release of 25 additional bighorns in 2007.

Bighorn sheep thrive in areas with steep, rocky terrain, which can be found in abundance in the gorge along with a year-round water source.

The bighorns spend most of their time in the canyon proper and above the canyon on mesa tops. When outside the gorge, they generally stay close enough so they can retreat to the safety of the canyon. Bighorn sheep have exceptional vision and climbing ability.

The growing bighorn herd is a positive sign in the ongoing efforts to restore the species in New Mexico.

While getting photographs of this animal is al-ways exciting, having an opportunity to witness two rams in the rut is a memory that will last a lifetime. The slamming of heads is a violent act as the two animals charge at speeds around 20 mph. The sound of the collision can be heard up to a mile away.

Mating season for low-elevation Rocky Mountain bighorns runs from November to December, meaning the time is approaching to get the camera ready. During this time of year, rams battle for dominance and access to the females.

A good area to view bighorns is the West Rim Trail that extends from the rest area west of the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge on U.S. 64 and runs south along the canyon rim to NM 567 above the Taos Junction Bridge.

Quick action by professional river guide quickly retrieved 2 rafters flipped overboard at Big Rock!

March through June are typically high water months. The Race Course flows all summer long with the waves becoming technical maneuvers, around boulders, over drops and through tight squeezes. It’s great family fun on a hot summer day rafting the cool waters of the Rio Grande.

The gorge has Class II to Class V white water rapids that are managed for recreation by The U.S. Bureau of Land Management. The BLM maintains two developed recreation areas along the river that include hiking, biking and other recreational opportunities. In New Mexico, The Rio Grande has two main sections for rafting near Taos: the Taos Box and the Racecourse Run. The Taos Box, a more dramatic, deep canyon, is famous for its big, technical Class IV rapids, while the Racecourse Run is a Class III stretch better suited for first-time rafters and families.

The Rio Grande Gorge is a geological feature in northern New Mexico where the watercourse of the Rio Grande follows a tectonic chasm. Beginning near the Colorado border, the approximately 50-mile gorge runs from northwest to southeast of Taos, New Mexico, through the basalt flows of the Taos Plateau volcanic field. The gorge depth is 800 feet just south of the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, which spans the gorge 10 miles northwest of Taos.

The Rio Grande has two main sections for rafting near Taos: the Taos Box and the Racecourse Run. The Taos Box, a more dramatic, deep canyon, is famous for its big, technical Class IV rapids, while the Racecourse Run is a Class III stretch better suited for first-time rafters and families.

The Rio Grande Gorge is a geological feature in northern New Mexico where the watercourse of the Rio Grande follows a tectonic chasm.

The gorge depth is 800 feet just south of the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, which spans the gorge 10 miles northwest of Taos.

March through June are typically high water months. The Race Course flows all summer long with the waves becoming technical maneuvers, around boulders, over drops and through tight squeezes.
It’s great family fun on a hot summer day rafting the cool waters of the Rio Grande.

This Rio Grande rafting trip traverses the calm oxbows of the Orilla Verde National Recreation Area. The open canyon allows scenic views of towering basalt cliffs, high desert ecosystems, a lush riverside habitat, Class II rapids, and swimming.

Several Class II rapids occur throughout the outing, in between calm stretches perfect for swimming. Float through the village of Pilar, New Mexico where you will observe a quiet zone to minimize the impact of the passage through this historic, small New Mexico community.

Meet at Pilar Cafe, located 16 miles south of Taos, New Mexico, on State Highway 68-mile marker 28), at 8:15 A.M. or 12:15 P.M.

The Orilla Verde Recreation Area is located within the Rio Grande Del Norte National Monument and along the Rio Grande Wild and Scenic River. Nestled along the banks of the Rio Grande and within the steep-walled Rio Grande Gorge, the campgrounds in this area offer nearby access to the river. The elevation along the river is 6,100 feet and the steep canyon rises 800 feet from the river to the Gorge rim.

Gentle waters with occasional small rapids flow through Orilla Verde, providing an ideal setting for many recreational activities. Because of the dramatic changes in elevation and the diversity of plant life, Orilla Verde draws many species of animals, including raptors (such as eagles and hawks), songbirds, waterfowl, beaver, cougar, ringtail, mule deer, and more. The Rio Grande also has attracted humans since prehistoric times. Evidence of ancient peoples is found throughout the Recreation Area in the form of petroglyphs on the rocks and many other types of archaeological sites.

The canyon ecosystem descends 800 feet from rim to river, creating a unique diversity in plant and animal life. Ancient piсon and juniper forests include 500 year-old trees. Watchable wildlife opportunities include mule deer, red-tailed hawk, mountain blue-bird, and prairie dog. The climate is semi-arid with summer thunderstorms common in July and August, and snow possible from November through March. Summer temperatures range from 45 to 90F and in winter from -15 to 45F.

Big Tesuque Creek is a walk in campground not conducive to trailer or RV campoing.

There are 10 units, Picnic tables and grills, and Vaulted toilets in the parking lot.

There is no potable water and no Campground Host.

The entire area is very scenic, and NM 475 is also designated as the Santa Fe Scenic Byway. Because of the large stands of aspen, the area is very busy, especially in the fall aspen viewing season.

There are additional recreation opportunities along NM 475, both above and below Big Tesuque Campground, including hiking and biking trails, picnic areas, and in the winter, both nordic and alpine skiing.

Tesuque is pronounced “Tess-U-key”

Known world-wide as simply “the Santa Fe,” the Atchison Topeka & Santa Fe Railway came into its namesake city in 1880.

The 120 year-old spur from Lamy to Santa Fe, the vintage railcars, and the charming California mission-style depot at 410 S. Guadalupe St., combine to make a charming slice of history. Every year, tens of thousands of visitors come to see, photograph and paint the old Santa Fe Depot and ride the train along the original high-desert route that carried early tourist adventurers, settlers, artists and scientists into the city.

For many visitors, the railway is the only thing they know about Santa Fe before they come here: they hum the 40’s swing song “The Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe,” and they point excitedly to the familiar Santa Fe herald, the blue cross in the circle.

Since 1992, this rail line continues as the Santa Fe Southern Railway, a piece of living history – still carrying passengers through the high-desert beauty which is our home, and still carrying freight to serve the community. Like the Plaza, the Santa Fe Southern Railway, with it’s terminus at the old Santa Fe Depot, is an authentic, irreplaceable link to our City’s colorful past.

Eldorado at Santa Fe 1 mile private trail to Lamy Overlook, a panoramic vista of historic Lamy, New Mexico and the Galesteo Basin, ancestral home to the Tano, East Rio Grande Keresan, Pecos and Tewa native Americans.

Lamy depot was built for the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway (commonly known as the “Santa Fe”) and opened to passengers in 1909. It replaced a two-story wood frame structure erected in 1881. When the new passenger station opened, the original was converted into a freight depot and served this purpose into the 1940s.

The Santa Fe originally planned to run from Atchison, Kan., to Santa Fe, N.M., and then west to California. As the track building advanced into New Mexico, the civil engineers realized that the terrain around Santa Fe made this an impossible undertaking. The line was built through Lamy instead, and a spur line was built northward to Santa Fe. Amtrak passengers headed to the state capital still alight at Lamy where a shuttle transports them the remaining 18 miles.

Galesteo Basin Preserve

Over the past 15 years, Galesteo Basin Preserve Commonweal Conservancy has constructed the largest publicly-accessible, privately-owned trail network in the American Southwest. The GBP trails gracefully traverse the savannah grasslands, sandstone ridge lines and arroyos of an iconic landscape in northern New Mexico. With support from donors to the $1.4M Stewardship. Campaign, an additional 22 miles of hiking, biking, and equestrian trails are planned for development during the next four years.

The trails of the Galesteo Basin Preserve are celebrated by residents and visitors as a place of refuge and inspiration. The broad extent and diversity of the GBP trails invite day-long excursions and short-form wandering. It’s a place for people and wildlife. A place for well-behaved dogs and respectful equestrians and cyclists.

The Santa Fe Rail-Trail offers a flat, if jolty, journey. It’s paved and accessible between the Railyard and Rabbit Road. Beyond that it’s unimproved.

A few steep climbs, arroyos (dried creek beds) from rain run-off cutting gulches across the surface and “goathead” sandspurs lurking in the soil produce plenty of hang-on-to-your-britches moments.

Some stretches, like near Rabbit Road, are particularly bumpy, making it mostly used by mountain bikers. Be warned, however, a little rain can change the trail in minutes and make for a soupy ride if you’re caught in it.

New Mexico Game and Fish

SANTA FE – The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish is investigating a fish die off in the upper Pecos River from the village of Pecos to Cowles. The die off is affecting brown and rainbow trout and is being attributed to stress induced by low water conditions and poor water quality throughout late summer and early fall. Most of the fish observed were adult brown trout and a few rainbow trout. The department expects more fish to die through the fall as brown trout undergo spawning stress and flows continue to be very low.

Fish that are caught using legal fishing equipment are safe to consume; however, it is not recommended to collect and consume fish that are dead or dying.

If you see fish die offs, please contact the department immediately at (888) 248-6866.

The department will continue to evaluate waters statewide and will stock fish in waters that remain healthy for the fish. Waters that have been affected by die offs will be restocked when water conditions are suitable.
