Las Palomas Marsh


Las Palomas Marsh is a natural area that is protected and managed for aquatic and riparian habitat. Depending on water levels, the area offers good shore and marsh birding; desert scrub bird species are numerous in the winter. You can also walk to the Rio Grande/Caballo Reservoir (depending on water levels) from the marsh area. Adjacent lands include excellent opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding.


Take Interstate 25 to Exit 71 (Las Palomas). Head east for 0.7 mile to the frontage road. Turn left for 0.2 mile. Turn right on a gravel road for 0.8 mile, bear to your left, and find a place to park.
