There are numerous hiking, walking and mountain biking trails from our house and nearby. Access to the Rio Grande and the Arroyo Hondo Rvers is only 1.5 miles away and a dip in the swimming hole there is the perfect way to cool off on warm afternoons. It is a popular spot for kayaking and tubing. Trout fishing is excellent! For a thrill take a rafting trip down the 17 mile 'Taos Box' in the 800 ft deep Rio Grande Gorge with over 60 rapids including many Class 4 and several Class 5's. Also down at the river there is a well known beginner / intermediate rock climbing area and two major hot springs in which to soak your bones. You can arrange a ballon ride from our front yard out over the rivers and the countryside.
Taos Ski Valley is only 30 minutes away and provides challenging runs with surprisingly small crowds, even on holidays. Take a day to climb 13,161 ft Wheeler Peak (highest in New Mexico) and located next to the ski valley. Dine afterward at The Bavarian Inn. You could swear you were in Switzerland!
Visit colorful art galleries and the Harwood and Millicent Rogers Musuems in Taos. The Taos Pueblo is a living Cultural Heritage Landmark and should not be missed.
The kitchen at the house is perfect for cooking and dining in, but there are MANY great local restaurants nearby as well. We have provided a list of our favorites at the house.
