A Breathtaking Landscape...
Whether you prefer strenuous hikes or leisurely walks, you'll find a trail just right for you. While it will take the better part of a day to go all the way up to the peak of the Pedernal the mountain that Georgia O'Keeffe painted in countless variations some of the hikes near the Ghost Ranch Retreat Center will only
take a few hours.
For the water enthusiast, the area around Abiquiu offers many possibilities. The lovely Abiquiu Lake is ideal for swimming and canoeing, and a 30 min. drive north takes you to Lake Heron. Several outfitters in Santa Fe and in Taos offer whitewaterrafting trips down the Rio Chama and the Rio Grande. Go to the Links page for more information.
Other ways to enjoy the scenic beauty around here are on the back of a horse, or with a mountain bicycle.
