Semi-columnar basaltic cliffs
Be careful when parking to not block mailbox and to park just off the paved road. There have been issues of this sort with residents.
Coming in from Santa Fe and Albuquerque follow the main State Highway past most of White Rock to the Southwest end of town. Turn Southeast (left) on Monte Rey South and go 0.7 miles to Portrillo Road. Turn right and go 0.8 miles to Estante Road. Turn right and drive to pullout on right side of road by isolated mailbox and fire hydrant. Follow path that goes to the right from the road. As you go down the path you will see a house above you on a cliff edge. Follow the path until it splits and take the right fork. Go through silver gateposts to a point just past a government property sign. Veer left onto less obvious path to cliffs. Total hiking distance about three-eights of a mile on almost flat ground.
