New Mexico is truly a Land of Enchantment. There are so many amazing wonderland of nature.
And you don’t have to drive too far from the city to get to these “hidden spots”.
Just about 20 miles northwest from the City Hall of Rio Rancho is a wonderland called the White Ridges, located between the Ojito Wilderness and White Mesa.
Here are the directions to get to this area:
Go north on Unser Blvd. (passing the City Hall) and make a left on Hwy 550.
Just before you get to San Ysidro, make a left at Cabezon Road, a dirt road.
Take the left fork where it says White Ridges Bike Trail. This dirt road is called the Cabezon Road.
Keep on going for a couple of miles or so. Soon you will see a gravel parking lot on the left side.
Keep on going for a half a mile or so and you will get to a gravel parking lot on the right side.
Park your vehicle and just start hiking upward on any biking/hiking trail and you will get there – – guaranteed.
