    About 30 miles northeast of Santa Fe. From Santa Fe: take US 84/285 N to NM 503 in Pojoaque. Turn right onto NM 503 and continue on this scenic 'High Road' towards Chimayo. Pass CR 98 which turns left to Chimayo and continue on NM 503; first you will see the Overlook Campground turnoff on the left, then continue towards and past Cundiyo to Santa Cruz Lake Rd (CR 98A) which is approximately 5.5 miles past the Overlook Campground turnoff. Note: There is no Recreation Area entrance sign at Santa Cruz Lake Rd off NM 503 from the South. From the North: Take NM 503 South from NM 76 (east of Espanola) to Santa Cruz Lake Rd; turn right.
