Mileage was calculated from KitFox flagship location and choosing the most direct route to the location of interest.  We find that traffic is typically not significant in New Mexico and many destinations are scenic and adventurous in nature. 

We recommend that you do personal research outside of our list to ensure locations are open for business and have capacity to accommodate your party.  This information is a general list of places that we love ourselves or are popular destinations which have been recommended to us by our guests, and is not in any way an endorsement for a specific organization, location, or experience.  

This information is provided as a courtesty only.  Please use your own discretion when planning activities during and surrounding your stay at KitFox.
