Romantic and breath taking view, definitely worth a stop. Not much to do there but there are some benches and if you're brave you can hike down to the river.

Well worth a short diversion to look at the Rio Grande Gorge from the White Rock Overlook Park. The view is breathtakingly spectacular to the valley below. On the opposite side is a tall waterfall. We could hear the fall from the park. As you...More

A short walk from the parking lot brings you to a fenced overlook with great views of the Rio Grande, mesas, and distant mountains. Also seen from the trail -- pinon pine, Grama grass (did you know this is NM's state grass?), and lichen-covered volcanic...More
