Scenic Half-Day Float
This Rio Grande rafting trip traverses the calm oxbows of the Orilla Verde National Recreation Area. The open canyon allows scenic views of towering basalt cliffs, high desert ecosystems, and a lush riverside habitat. Several Class II rapids occur throughout the outing, in between calm stretches perfect for swimming. We float through the village of Pilar, New Mexico where we will observe a quiet zone to minimize the impact of our passage through this historic, small New Mexico community.
We meet at Pilar Cafe, located 16 miles south of Taos, New Mexico, on State Highway 68-mile marker 28), at 8:15 A.M. or 12:15 P.M.
