This Overlook gives a beautiful view of the Rio Grande nestled between the mesas as the river meanders towards Bandelier National Monument. I talk all of my out of town visitors for a look.

Activities at the park are mostly soccer and baseball, but the view into White Rock Canyon is quite spectacular.

Very short distance through the very small town of White Rock. Less than 10 mins off of the highway. Poorly advertised from highway 4, but once you turn into White Rock very easy to find -- just follow the large blue signs. The day we were there only one other couple was there so parking could not be easier, and the views overlooking the Rio Grande valley were fantastic. About a 45 min drive north and west of Santa Fe. If you are headed to Bandelier state park this is well worth the stop. There is a modest but very friendly vistor center for the whole area at the turn off the highway with a clean toilet...did not see a toilet at the actual overlook.

Easy to drive to this gorgeous view. Step out of your can and walk a very short, flat path to overlook. Well worth the trip

It is easy to get to and the views are incredible: the Rio Grande Gorge, Sangre de Cristos, O' Keefe country, and even the San Juans on a clear day. If you're there at sunset you'll understand why the Sangres are named 'the blood of Christ.'
