Just north of town is the gaping Penitente Canyon. Once a retreat and place of worship for a small, fervent sect of the Catholic Church known as Los Hermanos Penitente, it is now a haven for rock climbers, hikers, and mountain bikers. Follow Route 112 about 3 miles from Del Norte, then follow the signs to the canyon.
