A great view and well worth a visit, although 10 minutes will probably cover all that's worth seeing. We stopped on our way back after visiting Bandelier.

Stopped here on the way to Bandelier. Amazing views of the river and mesas. Not in the least bit crowded, with nearby park facilities (washrooms, drinking fountains, picnic areas, etc).

An amazing view of the Rio Grande & surrounding mountains awaits. Well worth a detour to view. Almost feels you are driving the wrong way through a sports ground but keep going to reach the view point!

How old do you think these rocks are, and would you believe they have been here for 2000 some years perhaps. This huge expanse of rocky fields, and the expansive intimate clouds thread through the sky making the trails here to be worth the drive.

Great views of the area. You can see for miles. Black Mesa is in the background. The Rio Grande is below. Rock climbing in the area.

On a clear day you can see from Colorado to Santa Fe. Spectacular view of Black Mesa and other mesas all with the Jemez in the background. A perfect end to a day at Bandalier.

White Rock is a great place for a quick stop after visiting Bradbury Museum and Bandelier National Monument. Hiking trails also available!

They are presently repaving part of the route between here and Santa Fe. That section will be smooth. Big trucks often use the route you will be taking. It isn’t until you go up into the Jemez Mts. Which is further down the... More
