We have visited Santa Fe, NM twice and on our second visit we stopped by the Randall Davey Audubon Center. I am an amateur bird photographer and was looking to get a few good bird pics. This Audubon Center is at the end of Canyon Road and the surface is gravel for the last mile or so up to the... More

After seeing much of the city, I decided to go to the Audubon Center, located at the end of Canyon Road in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. There's a visitor center ( extremely helpful staff), activities for children, and wonderful hiking trails through the mountains. A nice way to explore the flora and wildlife of Santa Fe, away from the... More

This is not a tourist destination. When you are craving a little peace and quiet, the Audubon Center is a peaceful little diversion. It's usually not crowded unless they are doing a program and you can walk at your leisure and sit and rest when you feel like it. The surroundings are beautiful and if you are there during the...

If you are in Santa Fe and want a little enjoyment of wilderness come here and make the little nature walk. You will find it to be amazingly quiet and peaceful for its relative proximity to "civilization"

Beautiful Hike But No Birds The Audubon center affords mild hikes with gentle elevations in beautiful terrain. Educational signs help point out animals, birds and plants. The hiking trail for me was mild to moderate. Benches are strategically placed for the views. Parking is available at the visitor center Staff is helpful. Bathrooms were clean Seeing birds is similar to... More

Bring a map to be sure you make the correct jag on Canyon Road or Alameda or however you choose to get here. There are exhibits and birding tours. Rent some binoculars. Do it yourself on the 1.5 mile Spring Canyon loop. The trail has been altered since the land has been modified, but still relatively easy to follow with... More

If the pine-fresh air of Santa Fe isn't quite enough for you, combine it with the tranquility and beauty of a visit to the Auduban Center - ten minutes tops from the Plaza downtown. Utter quiet, great hiking, you'll want to sit down and ponder the wonders of existence.

It was peaceful and beautiful nature center right outside of town. Great local place to take in nature after a day of sightseeing. The ride up there was pretty and I enjoyed going past the houses. I didn't go on the trails because it was late but I enjoyed strolling around the grounds taking pictures
