  • Hyde Memorial State Park is a glow with Color in the Fall. The Aspen trees glow yellow, all along the drive through the park. Very scenic road, with access on side of road to pull over and take pictur...  more »
  • I think there's a ranger station and bathroom but I've never stopped there. Quite a number of beautiful woodsy hikes start from pullouts in the park, and that's pretty much the point. You can go for m...  more »

  • Very let and nice. We enjoy hiking here. It's usually busy, but worth visiting.
  • This a beautiful location and great place to camp. I was next to the river. Well maintained and kept. In the Reserved locations you have literally your own restroom and log constructed covered awning structure with picnic facility and fire place. Very close to Santa Fe. The only down side is the road with moderate traffic. This happened to the area we chose and perhaps there are more quaint areas. But over all satisfied and beautiful site in the Sangre de Cristo Mountain range.
  • Really nice place for a day hike. The Circle trail is well graded and relatively easy if you're fit. For those who aren't normally active or acclimated to the altitude, it might be a bit much.
  • We are not impressed with the staffing at this place. On arrival the visitor center was closed so we had no idea where to go with our RV. We eventually did find our place. Several times in our two week stay people came to us for information about sewage dump, walls and other info. One evening there was a Forrest fire and a ranger came and informed us that we may need to move...we never got any updates after that. The place itself is lovely, with some nice trails I'd you can find them. We are very disappointed that in the two weeks we were there the visitor center was NEVER open. From a safety point of view they should have maps available for the holes and it would be helpful for visitors to know where they are going. It was great that they told us about the fire, but we then had three days worrying about what was happening and only found out that the fire was out by stopping a ranger and asking. Very disappointing.
  • Loads of green. Several nice trails one with a cool waterfall. Camp sites are close to the main road so there's a bit of road noise at night, but otherwise pleasant.
