I've been over a lot of the trail. If you start trekking East by the Ski Area you will eventually come to a fence. Go right on a side trail and come to a picturesque canyon. Instead you can continue on the trail going up...More

An excellent trail system, that is somewhat less crowded than the Dale Ball and other trails closer to Santa Fe. Our favorite thing to do on this trail (beside hike) is to go mushrooming for Porcini (boletes) and Chanterelles. In the late summer early fall,...More

This is the main hiking trail leading from the Santa Fe Ski Basin into the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. It is not for those with heart conditions or similar medical concerns, and even its base is high enough (over 10,000 feet) that you'll be puffing...More
