The road to Fenton Lake takes you through La Cueva - the last stop for supplies

La Cueva, NM

At La Cueva, a west turn on Hwy 126 leads to Fenton Lake State Park, which offers picnic areas, wheelchair accessible platforms and ice fishing. For more information contact 505-829-3630; 505-829-3535 for the ranger station. Hwy 126 is unpaved between mile markers 33 and 13.5. It curves north past Seven Springs Hatchery, remodeled as a breeding facility for native Rio Grande cutthroat trout. The road winds through woodlands to Cuba, gateway to the San Pedro Parks Wilderness.

Cross Country Skiing – Cross country skiers will find a trail bonanza within a 20 mile drive of La Cueva. East of La Cueva along Hwy 4, encounter five different ski areas, including an easy two and a half mile loop trail near Redondo Campground and more difficult trails in the Los Griegos area, which offers views of Redondo Peak and Valle Grande. West of La Cueva on Hwy 126, don't miss Valle San Antonio Road, a five-mile, one-way trip to San Antonio Hot Spring. Soak in the hot spring and enjoy views of the Bandelier Tuff cliffs across the canyon.

Fishing – North and west of La Cueva on Hwy 126 you will find many enjoyable fishing spots, including popular Fenton Lake State Park, which offers picnic areas, wheelchair accessible platforms and ice fishing.
