  • Magnificent... unfortunately we could not get anywhere close to it. It is on private land, and although the guidebooks claimed that the gates were open and we could get close - alas the gates are...

  • Went today to try to hike and it's closed for the season with a sign outside the mosque gates. Hope everyone in the community is well, staying safe and has a blessed season.

  • Beyond incredible, seems like it should be a world heritage site or something! Not really a hike, it's more like a walk and gawk experience. Uncrowded. Incredibly generous of Dar Al Islam to allow...

  • What a beautiful place!! Right now it is closed. Hopefully some day in the future it will reopen. Here are some pics from years past. I didn't see any pics of the real back of the canyon where the pour over is. Most have probably not been all the way to the back.
  • Should be a UNESCO site. Under Covit restrictions not allowing out of state visitors right now. Land owned by Dar al Islam Mosque and ther VERY graciously allow access to Plaza Blanca....respect the site and their generosity of access.....
  • Great place to wander for winter hiking. The adventurous can do quite a bit of exploring here, if you're comfortable with rock scrambles. Free access. Worth the 1 hour drive up from Santa Fe.
  • Unique place worth a stop and a hike. Then you can drive to El Rito and eat at El Farolito. The area belongs to an Islamic center and you need to call in advance to get a code to pass the gate.
  • We weren’t able to enter. There’s a sign on the gate stating you need pre-approval via email. Bummer! FYI for future visitors.
