Come experience the soul of Taos by winding down into our Rio Grande Del Norte Del National Monument offering 310,528 acres of breathtaking landscape that has inspired so many artisans to articulate with creativity. It’s amazing that our Rio Grande is still Wild & Scenic and free flowing up here in the northern part of New Mexico. Towering 565 feet above the Rio Grande we cross over the Taos Gorge Bridge boasting some of the best views from Taos.
Come hike with us to experience and learn about the geology, the geomorphology and capture a slice of heaven in the American Southwest still untouched by dams. Being at 7,000ft this hike is an excellent opportunity to acclimate to our arid climate in the high desert of the Taos Plateau. La Vista Verde trail hikes to a scenic overlook of the Rio Grande (6400′ elevation, 2.5 mile, relatively flat round-trip scenic hike) offering a grand display of the dynamic geological forces that sculpted this valley.
Taos is full of colorful lifestyles in the bucolic settings in and around the historical area. The Earthship Biotecture is the World Headquarters offering a story of sustainability, innovation and absolute creativity in architecture. Situated on the western edge of the rift we explore another slice of Taos storytelling visiting Earthships before making our way back towards the historical area of Taos.
***Additional Hiking Option to Bull of the Woods Trail in Taos Ski Valley hikes to a beautiful alpine meadow. (9400′ elevation to 10,900′ 4 miles moderate terrain)
