Beautiful trails - nicely maintained. There were benches along the trails as well at a gazebo type of building. Great views, great photo ops and peaceful. These trails are not difficult and in my opinion would serve all level of hikers well. After walking around town among a lot of people, this was a perfect place to unwind. The beautiful... More

If you've been to a National Park, you've seen better than this. The trail is about a mile long and little more than a cleared path. Could have been the time of day, but very little to see.

A short drive from the Plaza, the Audubon Center is a gem of a nature preserve. Call ahead for hours and to learn what birds are in season. The garden is lovely, too.

This is a nice Santa Fe retreat staffed by people who know the local bird population and a good deal about the mountain flora and fauna as well

We went here to hike to watch birds, but ended up touring Randall Davey's house. The docent was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed the tour.

It abuts the Santa Fe Canyon Preserve where you can take the mile and a half trail and watch birds and beavers.

My husband and I had the honor of birding this morning with "Birding and Tour Guide" Cheryl Grindle. We could not be happier as Cheryl created quite an exciting experience for us. Her knowledge, fun and easy nature, and quick eye made for a most successful morning with 25 species spotted, many firsts for us. I'd visited the Randall Davey... More

Take a walk up the hillside with your own or rented binocs, and you will see some great sights. Lots of birds and other critters in a beautiful high desert setting. The volunteers and sharp and helpful. Definitely worth the drive.

This was a great little center at the end of Canyon Rd. There are a few short, easy to hike trails with lots of benches for bird watching. You can take a longer trail into the canyon if you are up for it, or stay on the maintained loop trails around the property. There is a flower garden with several... More
