Parks & Recreation

Once you hop onto Interstate 40 you can head toward the happening city of Albuquerque, but not without passing Cibola National Forest. This National Forest features a diverse collection of environmental biomes, juniper and ponderosa trees, and desert and prairie landscapes. Four National Grasslands are located in this forest, stretching from the northwestern portion of New Mexico and into Texas and the western part of Oklahoma.

In addition to camping, backpacking, or exploring one of the many trails available here, visitors can observe the wildlife that calls this forest home. The pronghorn antelope and prairie dog, bears, mountain lions, and the wild turkey are just a few of the inhabitants that live here. Other unique activities include panning for gold, treasure hunting, and fossil collecting. Individual recreational sites are also available for visitors.
