Hiking and Fishing
The region has some great opportunities for hiking and fishing.
As well as hiking up to the Plaza Blanca itself there are
great hiking trails around and into the red-rock country of
Ghost Ranch which is just 20 miles away. Near there is
also a Box Canyon Hike which is very mild and easy gradients
with plenty of trees for cover even in summer. Hart
Canyon Trail is also a great choice.
To the south is the Santa Fe National Forest which has
managed hiking trails. See a full list with details
Nearby Abiquiu Lake is said to have some of the best fishing in New
Mexico. An artificial lake create to control flooding on the Rio Grande it
now is a location for water sports on fishing.
