Beautiful scenery, a quiet natural setting, and easy access make Hyde Memorial State Park a favorite picnic area, campground, respite, and base camp for excursion to the surrounding Santa Fe National Forest.

Good short trail out of town. I wore my 5-months old baby and I hiked with my over 70yo dad. Easy hike. It can be snowy at winter.

a nice hike. not too difficult. some inclines and nice view of ski santafe and Mount Baldy from the top.

Great way to spend a sunny afternoon.

Easy-to-follow and well-maintained network of trails. With clear markers and maps at junctions, you can customize your hike for whatever distance and duration you wish. The walking is pretty mild -- no major ascents or descents. An enjoyable and convenient Santa Fe hiking spot.

Steep climb with sharp drop offs. Not many overlooks, but beautiful trail through the trees. Just great to be in Santa Fe!

Great trail.

Hiked a portion of the Dale Ball trails. Nice rocky trail with good markings and many options to make it longer or shorter.

The hike starts at Borrow trail head. I would agree with others in moderate rating. You do go up and down a couple times. No view at 3.5mi. Pics probably from upper section (entire trail is over 9mi to Ski Santa Fe). Great stroll through the woods. Nice color on Aspens in the fall.

This was a great day for a hike and a great place! Didn't find it too easy, thanks to the different elevations. Great, smooth incline and just when I thought I couldn't go any further it would change to downhill or a flatter area. With the different trail options, you could also choose how far you wanted to go. Loved it!

after a weeks worth of rain, was hiking up a rillet and able to use the pinecone dams for dry footing. forest department volunteers were working on the trail to repair rain damage. there was a lone western scarlet gilia in the meadow. beautiful trail on a wet day.

Beautiful hike. TAKE A PICTURE OF TRAIL MAP. We took a wrong turn and ended up on Bishops lodge. Had to Uber back to our car 5 mi away, which doesn't sound bad, however it sounds horrible when you've already walked 7.5mi that day.

very steep, most of trail very close to sharp drop...the alternative, supposedly more difficult route, is much nicer with a more gradual incline. both paths go to the same location

Gorgeous views, went labor day weekend and did not encounter too many people. Only one dog was on a leash. Stop often to rest and listen to the trees sing in the wind. At the top of the ridge before coming back on the loop, there are other trails to explore. Had lunch at the top. It was nice ending with the meadow; it was all easy down hill to wildflowers, bees, and young aspens.

Nice walk today. Overcast and a few light drops of rain, but easy walk for most anyone. Nicely marked trail for younger hikers, dogs, mountain biking, etc.

Walked it today. No signs of dogs or poop. Very pleasant hike with a low difficulty and nice views. Paths are very well marked.

Beautiful. Quiet. A lovely escape
