Isolated. Immersed in nature. A lovely drive there past gorgeous houses with the backdrop of the Sangre de Cristos, a cool hike down to the perfect place to take in the Rio Grande. Go naked.

Black Rocks in Arroyo Hondo are better Manby is not as hot as Black Rocks With that said, I have not been to Manby in the winter. Its also a slightly longer and more challenging hike down to the pools from the parking area.
