This park has a great trail around it, with a cemetery, stage, benches, tables. and even little league fields in the back. Great for jogging, picnicking, or just walking.

We accidentally drove this way on our way to Taos and it's absolutely gorgeous. There were sheer cliffs, warnings of falling rocks, etc. I almost hit a deer but because I was going slow we both lived to share it with our respective herds. We...More
