One of our local boy scouts has completed his Eagle Scout project by providing John Martin Reservoir State Park with a brand new geocaching program. Please check with staff to check out GPS units, and give finding the caches a shot!
The new Geo-Cache locations are provided below:
A 9-hole disc golf course can be found on the eastern side of Lake Hasty. Parking is available at the East shelter where the course loop begins and ends. A map of the course can be found under publications as well as the Visitor Center.
The Red Shin Trail begins at the stilling basin below the dam and winds through the park to the Santa Fe Historic Site on the North shore of the reservoir. The trail is approximately 4.5 miles and provides excellent opportunities for wildlife viewing! You can also access the trail from the visitor Center for a shorted hike traveling both east and west.
This trail is exposed to the elements with no shade or shelter. Be sure to start your days early if you are planning a hike in the summer!
