  • Sometimes you just get lucky while traveling. We had stayed in White Rock, a "suburb" of Los Alamos, one night on a vacation. We started a morning drive to Los Alamos when my companion suggested we st...  more »

  • Fairly nice lookout if you are passing through the area. If you're staying in Santa Fe and only coming out to the lookout it's probably not worth your time as it's quite a ways out. If you're staying in Santa Fe and looking for a lookout I'd suggest the top of Ski Santa Fe. There's an amazing lookout at the top much closer to town.
  • Only about 5 minutes off the main road, this stop is worth it if you have the time! There are parks with restrooms nearby. When we went on a Friday at noon, no one else was there. Had the view to ourselves-- quite an expansive sight of the Rio Grande! There are just a few parking spots, but you could park down the road a bit if necessary.
  • This overlook provides a clear, open view of the Rio Grande! It's close to town and isn't off of some sketchy dirt road. The only down fall is that the the sun sets in the opposite direction of the overlook BUT it's perfectly placed for sunrises if you can make it there on time!
  • Spectacular long distant views from a place that's not on most tourism maps. Visit after a recent rainfall, and a waterfall is an added bonus.
  • I'm biased; I grew up near it,so it's linked to childhood memories, but I think it's a fantastic view, the equal of many spectacular views I've seen in national Parks.
