Set in New Mexico's high country, where spectacular palisade cliffs and clear running waters dominate the landscape, Cimarron Canyon
State Park is part of the 33,116-acre Colin Neblett Wildlife Area -- the largest wildlife area in the state.

The cool, high mountain park offers excellent trout fishing. Anglers can fish eight miles of premier brown trout waters for stocked browns or rainbows. Smaller trout and solitude can be found in the Cimarron River's tributaries -- Clear Creek and Tolby Creek.

Elk, deer, bear, turkey and grouse attract hunters in the fall and winter. Wildlife viewing is plentiful as songbirds, elk, deer, bear, turkey and grouse call the park home.
Crenelated granite formations make up sheer palisade cliffs that dominate the park's scenery. From the main canyon, day hikes and cross-country skiing are popular.

Cimarron Canyon State Park is three miles east of Eagle Nest along US 64, as shown on this map of the area. The park is part of the Colin Neblett Wildlife Area owned by the New Mexico State Game Commission and the Department of Game and Fish, with significant funding from the Sport Fish and Wildlife Restoration Act.
