Explore the most popular river trails in New Mexico with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Pools were kinda warm and the area was really trashed. Lot of broken glass, nasty clothing, dirty diapers and even a bag of dog poo in the lower pool. Pretty gross overall...

First time hiking this trail and absolutely loved it! Climbed out into the river to enjoy the sound of the water.

Such a nice trail. I recommend buying the map in the visitors center to follow along with the numbers on the trail.

I grew up in northern New Mexico so I’m no stranger to scenic mountain drives, but this one really surprised me and I considered it jaw dropping in places.

Canyon was neat, the rest of the trail was unnecessary.

Fantastic Trail- As you climb the grade is very reasonable and the view from lakes is truly spectacular. If you only do 1 Hike in the Pecos this would be it!

Great trail. Beautiful with the light snow.

Amazing trail. Steep inclines toward the top and some dodgy/hidden trail sections but overall a great hike!!

Not a bad hike, lots of sand..was like 4 miles of beach walk. Beginning was cool in the canyon

Love this trail as it runs right next to the Rio Grande. Best time to go is early morning less traffic and dogs. Encountered a few Coyotes but they fear you more than you fear them.

Drove an hour to get out there to find the road blocked off. This trail is closed till mid april for “restoration”... bummer but decided to walk the san juan river trails instead and it was an absolute delight! NM has enchanted me once again

Closed to public for restoration construction through April 15, 2018. Still beautiful to walk along the river though. Will be back when accessible!

Definitely a challenging but rewarding hike! A lot of climbing and steep elevation near the crash site, but worth it!

Fun and easy hike!

Wonderful/ beautiful hike, very steep towards the end of the hike. Continuing past the crash site will take you to the top of the La Luz. Would highly recommend.

Very good trail for a beginner, well marked and well maintained.

The trail head all trails brought me to was definitely longer than .3 miles with a significant incline (more than 120 feet for sure). We didn’t even make it because my friend didn’t have the right shoes on and was sliding down the trail because it was so steep. We were pretty bummed we couldn’t make it.

Beautiful hike! We lucked out and had snow on the majority of the hike, but just enough that it was fun!

This was hands down one of my favorite hikes that I have done in the Albuquerque area. The hike is challenging, but you feel so rewarded when completed. Looking up above and seeing the Tram was really surreal! The TWA plane crash stretches up the mountain at the end of the hike for quite a ways...It is very sad, but also very interesting. Take lots of snacks and water!

Steep climb up, but once you're there it's breathtaking.
