I love it. This trail is very easy to walk if you are a beginner like myself or just want something nice to walk.

Good for running and biking. A bit boring for a walk. You see JC Penney, Sam’s Club. Hot in the sun.

Good trail for bike riding & walking dogs. Not a lot of shade. Quite a long walk if you do the whole thing. Good for a neighbourhood stroll.

This is a well maintained paved trail through Santa Fe, but the trail starts at Urban Trail & turns around at the start of the Rail trail. Probably added for distance. While through Santa Fe the trail only offers 1 bathroom & water stop at Villa Linda Park.

Nice way to travel from southern parts of town towards downtown, however I frequently get flat tires from the little goat heads (barbed seeds) that come from the vegetation near the arroyo at the lower portion of this trail.

Nice trail connecting south Santa Fe to nearly downtown. The trail is well maintained and great to biking since I believed the entire thing is blacktop.

A nice paved trail for walking, running, or biking that runs along the arroyo. Located in Santa Fe, its a nice alternative to city streets for crossing east-west and hooks into the north-south Rail Trail. If you get tired of pavement, there's always the arroyo (if there's no storm activity). Street crossings are well developed and safe. And, it passes through a nice small city park about midway (where it crosses Avenida de las Campanas) for a nice rest stop that has a waterfountain. Does not use city streets; not sure how anybody got that idea?

"Hoax trail"? Um, no. Perhaps the previous reviewer wasn't in the right place. NONE of this trail is on roads, except for where it crosses a street. This is a wide, paved trail through native plants and flowers. Most of it follows the arroyo, adjacent to upscale adobe-style homes and a few commercial areas on the western two-thirds, and to an active rail line on the northeastern end. There are numerous access points (many with parking) to the trail, although most aren't well marked. The trail itself is easy to follow once you're on it, and affords scenic views of the arroyo and the surrounding mountains.

This is NOT a trail. Most of if is on the two busiest streets in Ssnta Fe. This is a hoax trail.
