“The Southwest's Supervolcano”

About 1.25 million years ago, a spectacular volcanic eruption created the 12-mile wide crater-shaped landscape now known as the Valles Caldera.  The preserve is known for its huge mountain meadows, abundant wildlife, and meandering streams and for preserving the homeland of ancestral native peoples and embracing a rich ranching history.

It's huge and a nice site, but not really worth the drive. If you are to make it, it's best in the summer.

This is a fantastic place to visit. 89,000 acres of wilderness and you can hike all of it, or spend the day fishing. There's a $20 entry fee or they honor all Federal park passes for no charge entry. Elk abound and visitors may see coyotes, lots of prairie dogs, hawks and deer as well. There are even black bear here. A great way to spend a day.

This 89,000 acre National Preserve is in the heart of one of three super volcanoes in the United States. Known for its expansive high mountain valleys, large elk herds, and diverse history.
