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. Crenellated 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. Elk, deer, bear, turkey and grouse attract hunters in the fall and winter. Wildlife viewing is plentiful as songbirds, elk, deer, bear call the park home.
