It is definitely worth the short detour when going to Los Alamos. There is parking at the overlook. The view is down into the Rio Grande River and North and South. Inpressive view so have the camera ready.

White Rock, New Mexico, is what I consider to be a suburb or bedroom community of Los Alamos. It definitely is a separate, individual community with its own Visitor's Center and very nice Library and small shopping area. The White Rock Overlook Park is in White Rock NOT Los Alamos.

We wondered if we were on the right path as our GPS guided us through a neighborhood. but it was the way to a stunning overlook as the town sits on the gorge edge. The overlook is beside community sports and picnic areas!

Nice little stop to take in the view when in White Rock. You can drive all the way out to the overlook and park. It was very quiet when we visited.

This is a beautiful walk along a mesa on the edge of town. The views are stunning and look up and down the river from a height of approximately 1400 feet. An easy level trail with many great views and photo opportunities along the way. One of the best town parks/hikes anywhere.

Don't miss this view if you are traveling in the vicinity. Its breathtakingly spectacular for 360 degrees. It epitomizes the beautiful New Mexico landscape. Take a picnic and spend some time in the park.

Amazing views! If you come to visit New Mexico any time of year this overlook is a must. No need to walk or hike just simply enjoy. I did not see any restrooms around but there is a little shopping plaza before you reach the overlook. Enjoy!
