Ancho Rapids Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This is a desert plateau and canyon hike to the Rio Grande. After an easy beginning on high desert terrain, the trail descends along switchbacks, through a small, lush riparian area, onto the sandy banks and smooth black boulders bordering the Rio Grande. There is no shade on this hike, and in the heat of summer it could be a scorcher, so it may be a good idea to wait for a cool day. It is also an isolated hike."
