If you have the time and effort to take a little bit of an adventure, drive the extra 40mi from Jemez and head up here. This section of the forest is extremely off the beaten path of those urban dwellers just looking for a day get away. Trails are improved but do involve a bit to transverse sections of them.... More

The San Pedro's Parks are a cool, green contrast to the badlands west of Cuba. There are no fantastic sites or towering peaks, but miles and miles of high Mtns parks at 10,000 ft. Just some really nice all day crushing minus the crowds back in the eastern part of the state.
