It was top of basically every list for best place to catch a sunset, so we were surprised that we found only a handful of other people up there. Great view of the city and mountains.

This attraction is a unique insight into the history of Santa Fe and its colonizing. It's a brief and light hike up a hill with historical markers along the path and within easy access of the plaza. The view from the top is beautiful.

When we were there, there was no one around that questioned you being there. I am sure if you keep your dog on a leash and pick up after him or her there would be no problem.

There is no charge. You can take a car up to the top of the hill from the back or you can walk up the path from Paseo de Peralta from the front.
