Set against the desert foot of the dramatic Sacramento Mountains, this park features historic exhibits and a fully restored 19th century ranch house.

This is a very easy but pretty walk along an arroyo. good views of cottonwood trees.

The loop is pretty simple and a great warmup. I really recommend heading up the canyon off the loop. There are some nice water areas and enough folks have ventured up so there is a good path. Plus in the canyon there is a lot of shade which is quite nice for the area.

Very nice trail for a New Mexico desert hike. In spring and autumn are water in the canyon.

This is an enjoyable hike along the dry river bed with a small stream and the historical cabin ruins of Frenchie. We took this short hike on a March morning before the heat of the day hit. There are a lot of loose rock and overhanging trees that provided much welcome shade. It is a good warm up before you try the much more challenging Dog Canyon trail with very little incline. Beware of the wildlife in the area .
