Black Canyon Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This hike, close to Santa Fe, is suitable for children, well shaded, and a good introduction to the mountain terrain, fir-aspen belt vegetation, and wildflowers of this elevation in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The trailhead is located in newly renovated Santa Fe National Forest’s Black Canyon Campground, where half of the campsites can be reserved. Camping here is a real treat!"
