Some of the most exquisite alpine scenery in the Southwest is found in this National Forest. Here, you can find the headwaters of Pecos, Jemez, and Gallinas Rivers; mountain streams; lakes; and trout fishing. Consider visiting one of many nearby Indian pueblos, Spanish missions, and Indian ruins. Golden aspens grace the high country from September to October and snow blankets Santa Fe Ski Basin in winter.
