Get outside and check out our local trails!
Information from the Santa Fe Conservation Trust
One of the best ways to deal with social distancing is to get outside, get your body moving, get some sunshine – and stay at least 6 feet away from people! If you are on this email list, you know that the Santa Fe Conservation Trust has been involved in the creation of about 75 miles of trails in and around Santa Fe. Share this email widely so that everyone at least has the knowledge of wonderful places to walk, hike, mountain bike, or just sit in the sun.
Here’s a link to the Dale Ball Trails map, accessible off Hyde Park Road at Sierra del Norte, or at the top of upper Canyon Road and Cerro Gordo Road. This is a great place to tip your hat to Dale Ball, SFCT’s first executive director, who created this wonderful trail system in Santa Fe’s foothills.
Want to check out the La Tierra Trails? Type in “Frijoles Trailhead” or “Calabasas Trailhead” on google maps and you can find your way to this fabulous trail system just off of Camino de las Montoyas.
Want to get a nice view of Santa Fe? Type “Arroyo Hondo Open Space Trail Head” into google maps, and go check out this nice 3 mile loop with gorgeous views of Santa Fe.
If you live on the southside of town, google map “Cowboy Shack Trailhead” at the Galisteo Basin Preserve near Lamy. Here you’ll find over 30 miles of trails that are great for the temperate weather we are enjoying these days.
Also, here is a link to the Santa Fe County Trail Map App, for a paperless way to see where there are trails. Plus it's for the entire county:
