Chamisa Trail

Chamisa Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The Chamisa Trail (#183) goes through a ponderosa pine and mixed- conifer forest just east of Santa Fe. The short drive from downtown Santa Fe to the trailhead and the short length of the loop described here make this an ideal getaway when you need that quick fix but don’t have a lot of time.

Two trails leave from the Chamisa Trail parking area, located right off Hyde Park road. The main Chamisa Trail leaves the northeast corner of the parking area and goes uphill and east through the trees; the alternate route runs north through the canyon. The alternate route connects with the Chamisa Trail at a saddle about 1.0 mile from the trailhead. As described here, this alternate route can be used to make a fun training loop from the trailhead and back again."
