A short walk to a scenic overlook

Not really a hike. Just a walk to a sign where you can’t really even see the river. The landscape is beautiful but was hoping to see the river.

Not a hike here, just a short walk to a lookout, given the park as a whole, nothing spectacular to see from this lookout.

Not really a trail; but a short walk. The location is on the Rio Grande Village road, just past the tunnel, turn right to a parking area. You can walk up a rocky path to the overlook, and see Rio Grande Village, and the surrounding flood plain.
