Sports & Outdoor Actvities

 

From hiking, biking, fishing and hunting, to water activities or hot air ballooning, we have options for everyone who enjoys the outdoors.

Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham signed New Mexico’s Outdoor Recreation Division into law on April 2, 2019. New Mexico recognizes Outdoor initiatives are a powerful engine to grow wealth and job opportunities in New Mexico. Written into the law was the first-ever Outdoor Equity Fund, a grant intended to help disadvantaged youth get outside.

“When we create a focused office to both attract new businesses and boost existing concerns, we will plant our flag alongside Colorado, Montana, Utah and others—and indeed we have the potential to surpass them,” Lujan Grisham said when the bill passed the Senate. “With this targeted investment, we can and will attract more young adults who emphasize the outdoors in where they choose to live; we will provide important new opportunities to disadvantaged youth through the first-of-its-kind equity fund; and we will expand the economic reach of this industry to all corners of this state.”


 

Battleship Rock

Description

Located just 6 miles of Jemez Springs, Battleship Rock stands 200 feet tall and was formed over 5 million years ago from volcanic eruptions. The structure earned its name because it juts from the mountain like the prow of a ship. A few miles past Battleship Rock is Spence Hot Springs. The East Fork Jemez and San Antonio Rivers join at the 33 - site picnic area.
