it turned out to be more fun then I expected. It’s certainly not as EASY as ratings suggests. Some parts are comparable to INTERMEDIATE hikes. plus you can connect to other trails to change your experience as you go.

Challenging hike, in a good way. Good footing, no really long climbs. Beautiful scenery.

Great little trail in Santa Fe. Parking could be a problem, there's only four spots at the trailhead. I brought my two dogs. There's not much shade, but there was a very nice breeze cooling all of us off. Do bring water regardless. There's also plenty of areas to step off the trail to let others pass.

This is a wonderful loop. Great for a daily work-out. Great views along the trail with beautiful fauna. At the start is a parking lot for 4 cars only. You can drive up there, check it out and if you are lucky you park. If not park down at the school. Tis gives you some additional work-out. There is a nice trail along the street to the start of the Dorothy Stwart Trail.

Easy little city loop with plenty of vistas to overlook the city. It is very warm here, and our dog isn't a fan of heat so keep that in mind for your four-legged friends. The ground is almost glittery as you navigate the trail, which adds to its beauty. Quick, easy, and fun!

A really amazing hike! We went off the big loop trail and continued over to Castlerock between 40 and 41. For anyone looking for Castle rock, it is just up from 40, not where it says on the Dale Ball maps.

This is great trail with lovely views! It's pretty quick and easy for a morning hike. It also links into the other Dale Ball trails should you desire a longer outing. It is icy and snowy in the winter, so prepare if it's recently snowed or hasn't warmed up enough to melt the ice.

This is a really nice easy trail—you can start at the upper trail head (Dale Ball trails) and loop down to it. 44/39/38/33 are the markers. It is very icy in the winter, so pack a pair of nano-spikes.

Kinda busy, very minimal parking. But nice short’n’sweet. Tewa, Tiwa, Towa, Keres Territories ...SFe was a meeting hub for many pueblo societies, which contributed to much of today’s current road systems, trails, and cities

Beautiful little trail with some great sunset views! It isn't the best trail for toddlers due to some narrow paths with steep(ish) edges, but my older kids loved it. There are only 4 parking spots so you might need to park down at St. Johns. It is a little hike uphill from there and we wouldn't have wanted to do it with a little one in tow. Lucky us we got a spot and we're very glad we came out :)

Excellent easy to moderate trail with a loop around a hill. Views of Santa Fe on one side & the Sangre’s on the other that features a make shift natural bench. Only drawback is the parking. Only 4 spots at best located at the trailhead. Best to park at St. John’s & wall the .6 mile east.

Park at the St John’s lot and walk up. There is hardly any parking at the trail head. We went with our dog and she loved it. Lots of shade everywhere.
