Loved the visitor center, people there very knowledgeable and eager to share information. Incredibly well signed and maintained trails. Did an 8 mile loop. Confluence of the two rivers was gorgeous.

The hike is an inverted ecosystem-- the desert area is on the top and as you descend eventually you reach the pine trees.

This place is definitely a must see. If you like hiking then this is your place. We went hiking down the gorge towards the Rio Grande and the views were remarkable. We also ran into a male and female Bighorn sheep next to the parking lot. Such a neat place.

One of the best hiking areas around. Make sure to wear layers because the elevation changes and sudden weather changes can be as dramatic as the views.

I don't hike, but the trails are sure tempting. To get to Wild Rivers, you travel through the quaint settlement named Cerro. As you drive in, keep your eyes open for wildlife, there's a great variety here. Many pull-offs, even camping facilities are here. You will be amazed by the canyon created by a rift where the Rio Grande has found a home. Look up, you may see eagles. At one end of the area you can see the Red River join the Rio Grande, and beyond is a huge mesa and the Sangre de Cristo mountains.
