We enjoyed the short hike around the preserve and did part of the Dale Ball trail. The trail was icy/muddy at this time of year. We'll probably return when it is warmer. Ran out of time to visit the Audubon Center.

We enjoyed spending time at the audubon center. The walking trails are well marked. There are great views of the mountains and valleys in the area. It is a great spot for photos and exploring nature.

Good place to stretch and get away from the shopping in DT Santa Fe. Nice Bookstore. Close to a preserve with trails and trails to hike. The education center is informative.

Just five minutes from Downtown you can take a wonderful nature hike and enjoy a micro climate, which includes wetlands and beaver home. FYI closed for the winter.

We've been going since the kids were young, but it is a serene escape anytime with anyone. Romantic, contemplative, with nature and history ~ what more do you want?

This is one of my favorite stops in Santa Fe. It's just at the top of Canyon Road, but far above the glamour and glitz. The Center has a very pretty old home that overlooks the valley, lovely gardens that are full of birdlife in both spring and fall, and helpful volunteers. For newcomers to the SW there's a lovely...

We arrived when they were closing the gates, however we were allowed in and told to make sure we close it on our way out. This place is beautiful, we took one of the short trails and enjoyed it very much! After the walk we sat by the museum, which was closed but we peek through the windows and it... More
