Description

There are many options on these trails. Each intersection is numbered and marked with maps indicating your location. Mileage is marked between intersections so you can hike just about any distance you want. The trails are generally smooth fast hardpack. There are some rocky sections and change with the shift in bedrock.

The trails follow the undulating corrugations of the topography going up and down constantly, twisting and turning for a really unique experience. There are 3 sections of the City of Santa Fe Dale Ball trails, North, Central and South.

Flora & Fauna

These trails wind through pinyon and juniper forests.
