The Caja del Rio area is a lower elevation and drier section of the Santa Fe National Forest.  This is mainly a Piñon-Juniper dominated vegetation zone with areas of sage and mixed grasses.  It is often open for recreational opportunities when the rest of the Forest is snowed over.  Watch for seasonal road closures due to wet and very muddy roads.  It is another good area for solitude and lesser travelled trails.
