Worth the drive to get there... Mystical and magical: a spot that cannot be replicated by man. From the rock formations to how the foliage dresses them, nothing is stagnant, especially if rain has fallen. We got there on a picture postcard perfect day with...More

A nice short stop after visiting Ghost Ranch. A short walk to see the amphitheater, pretty neat to see. Of course couldn't resist the urge to yell something to hear the echo, pretty funny.

When traveling along US 84, Echo Amphitheater is a great place to stop for a short hike, a picnic, or restroom facilities. The natural beauty is stunning and it is a lot of fun to play with the echoes.

I live about an hour from this location but I hadn't visited it in a long, long time. They have made it look nice with a paved drive, picnic areas, restrooms and easy to walk paths. The plants and trees are identified with small signs....More

We were driving from Durango to Santa Fe when we saw the sign, Why not? We went to check it out - the fee was only $2/car. The amphitheater was about a 5 minute walk from the car, and the surrounding canyon walls were stunning....More

This is an open air, side of the road site. I have no reason to believe that it would ever be closed. There is a donation box and we saw no people in attendance. Enjoy.
