We are two miles from the Chama River where one can white-water raft, kayak, and fish. A table, two chairs, and two boogie boards are available for you to use on Rio Chama. You may bring your kayak or river raft and take a leisurely "Self-Outfitted" trip down the river to the Big Eddy Take-out, which takes approximately three hours. No fee or permit is required for "Self-Outfitted" river trips on the lower Chama River.
From Albuquerque take Highway 25 north to Santa Fe. From Santa Fe take Highway 285/84 north to Española. Continue north on Highway 84 towards Abiquiù and Chama. Half a mile after Mile Marker 227, there are two signs: "Forest Road 151" and "Monastery 13 miles." Turn left.
From Chama New Mexico: take Highway 84 South towards Abiquiù and Española. You will pass the Echo Amphitheater on your right. Look for Mile Marker 228 on your right. After Mile Marker 228, there are two signs: "Forest Road 151" and "Monastery 13 miles." Turn right.
On Road 151 continue west 8 miles until you come to Skull Bridge on the left; you will be provided with the combination to the bridge's locked gate. A sign before the bridge, on the right, reads "Gallina Canyon Ranch 8 Miles."
Unlock the bridge's gate by entering the correct numbers, and remember to PUSH IN THEN PULL OUT for the lock to open. DISREGARD THE SIGNS THAT READ "NO VEHICLES" AND "ROAD CLOSED."
Drive across the bridge, close and lock it again, and change the numbers. The same instructions apply to the next gate. Continue down the road and you will arrive at Gallina Canyon Ranch.
Allow 1 hour from Highway 84 to the ranch.
