These trails are extensive and interlocking -- yet for all that, clearly marked. Your hike can be as gentle or as strenuous as you want, from a casual walk up a broad, sandy wash, to hiking up either Atalaya Mountain.

What a boon to the people of Santa Fe to have this trail system in their own backyard. Very well marked trails suitable for mountain biking, horses or on foot. Beautiful scenery, lovely views and ample parking. Convenient to town. Pet friendly. Highly recommend.

Nice easy hike. We went with another couple at about late morning. Weather was pleasant for July. The trail was beautiful & great scenery. A few up-and-down Little Hills to go up -but good for the heart. We took our time and totally enjoyed.

We spent about an hour hiking the trails and had a really good time. There is VERY LITTLE parking so beware. I'd say it's an easy hike qith a few moderate sections

There are great hiking trails here. I did my first mountain biking, because I could ride from the center of Santa Fe to the trail head. It was challenging for me, But I think it would be OK for a more experience rider. Also, it...More
