San Lorenzo Canyon is located 20 minutes North from Socorro. If you ever want to go stargazing, walking your dog or on a fun easy hike with friends, that’s the perfect place! The area has a ton of caves and rock formations. A couple friends and I packed a backpack up with lots of snacks and went on a nice afternoon hike. The weather was perfect. Being that it had recently rained, there was a nice breeze that kept it from being too hot.
The different type of rock formations show the beauty and diversity there is here in New Mexico. Its filled with canyons and river beds, there was so much to explore a whole afternoon was not enough time. The canyon offers great camping and climbing spots, it also has numerous horse back and atv riding trails. If you ever want to get out and go on a hike, one of our athletic directors here at NMT likes to get people together and lead hikes. If you’re looking for adventure and a good time San Lorenzo is the place to go!
