Wild Rivers Recreation Area


The Rio Grande Gorge is a rugged, steep-walled canyon that cuts into the volcanic plateaus of north-central New Mexico. The Wild Rivers Recreation Area provides splendid views into this 800-foot-deep gorge. Most visitor facilities are located along the rim, but several trails provide access to the river and to facilities located within the gorge.
