Posos Trail

  Hiking trails like this one are plentyful in the San Juan and Jemez Mountains where you can truly take in all the beauty of these mountains. Posos Trail is not very near Espanola at all but it is a great escape from the city. Spending too much time indoors got you down? No problem, Posos Trail in Conejos County, Colorado is just the place.
This part of Colorado has a great deal of available outdoors activities. Conejos Campground is a good campground nearby;
    get your pulse rate up on the good whitewater of Conejos River. And if that's not sufficient there's a lot more entertaining things to do in the San Juan and Jemez Mountains. If you came for an overnight stay Spectacle Lake Campground
is a pleasant spot to camp. Whitewater paddling is not for everyone but if it's for you then we recommend Rio de los Pinos. First Meadows is right here at Posos Trail, and South Elk Creek is in the vicinity of Posos Trail and is always a bliss to explore.
