This Back Country Scenic Byway follows the Rio Grande Gorge. The Sangre De Cristo mountains to the east and volcanic mountains to the west add beautiful variety to the countryside. The Gorge plunges 800 feet at its deepest point and gapes up to a mile across at its widest point. Trails lead down into the Gorge where the adventurous can explore. One can also stay topside and explore nature's wonders there.
