Few Southwest destinations offer the unspoiled scenery of the Chama Valley. With an average altitude of 7800 feet, the Chama Valley offers a wide spectrum of recreational activities all year long. There is year 'round access via major highway and the region enjoys a four-season climate. The Chama Valley is bordered by three popular wilderness areas: the Carson, Rio Grande and Santa Fe National Forests.
In SPRING, mid-May snowmelt creates spectacular El Chorro Falls, cascading from the Brazos Cliffs. SUMMER is a celebration of outdoor activity: boating, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, 4-wheeling, the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad and more. Cool evening temperatures in FALL paint the mountainsides with brilliantly colored foliage. The Valley is also a hunter's dream with an abundance of mule deer and elk. In WINTER, the mountains can be blanketed with snow, creating a snowmobiling and crosscountry skiing wonderland under the bright New Mexico sun.
