A trip to Cerrillos Hills State Park could satisfy several interests for some hikers. A drive along the Turquoise Trail National Scenic Byway will take you through some of New Mexico’s ?nest scenery, a few ghost towns, and even a couple of artist destinations. If the drive isn’t satisfying enough, the 4.8-mile hike will take you through several rolling volcanic hills that were once successfully mined for silver, iron, and lead. The rolling hills that the trails cross over are relics of the volcanoes that were active in the area nearly 30 million years ago. Iron, lead, and silver were deposited here during that time. Millions of years later, Native American and Spanish explorers and settlers would come here to mine those minerals and turquoise from the area, which experienced a brief mining boom in the 1880s. However, it was largely disappointing because very few people actually made money.
