My husband and I hiked parts of this canyon and thoroughly enjoyed the scenery and birdlife. The terrain can change from pine-forests, to chaparral to riverine depending upon where you are in the canyon. Make sure to pack your own water and bring a camera....More

I'm an eleven year old girl and I loved it. As I got there, after having a lovely pick-nick, I enjoyed watching the vultures fly high in the sky. They are an amazing bird, and you can just sit down watch them for hours. After...More

I visited Rio Lobos valley without knowing anything about it. Despite poor signposting I got there pretty easily although it's a long way off main roads. It feels special, with huge cliffs on either side and the sight of vultures at the entrance to the...More
