Down an unsuspecting dirt road 15 miles outside of Santa Fe there is a hidden treasure for outdoor enthusiasts. Diablo Canyon offers dramatic vertical cliffs which make the area a perfect hiking and rock climbing destination near the Río Grande. With that said, not many folks seem to know about it, which is ironic considering Diablo Canyon has been featured in blockbuster movies such as The Missing, 3:10 to Yuma and Cowboys and Aliens. The cracked basalt of Diablo Canyon offers some of the best multi-pitch traditional and sport-climbing in New Mexico. The view from the top of the canyon walls are accessible by foot as well. A remnant of New Mexico’s volcanic history, Diablo Canyon is a well-kept secret waiting to be explored.
