When we planned this stop I didn't realize there was a state and a national park. We did the river road, an easy 4x4 road. First stop was at St. Elena Canyon, a 1.5 mile hike through the canyon. Really impressive. We then made a few more stops, one was at the abandoned Mariscal Mine where they mined for mercury. Then stopped at the hot springs, finally a stop at the Rio Grande Store for ice cream. A nice day riding.
