"The Dale Ball Trail- North is only one of many hiking and biking trails in the Dale Ball system. It is close to Santa Fe and gives a good introduction to the piñon and juniper hillsides, as well as the unusual and diverse seasonal flora that surround the city. Although it meanders through private property at times, it often seems very remote and far from any development. All trails are well laid out to eliminate blind corners and erosion and are well maintained; each has an informative activity board at the trailhead. This can be a great evening hike, but it can be very hot in the summer." Read more

"The Dale Ball South-Camino Loop is great for those days when you can’t decide whether to mountain or road bike. This loop has both of these options in one. Start the ride out on a mountainous singletrack and glide down an arroyo onto an unpaved road. The unpaved road eventually becomes a paved road, and at the end you have the option to keep on the paved road or ride along a groomed gravel trail all the way back to the trailhead." Read more
