La Vega

La Vega Professional Review and Guide

"Because this trail begins at the Santa Fe Ski Basin, it has less use than those closer to Santa Fe. Its destination is a beautiful valley complete with a stream running through it and a close view of Santa Fe Baldy.

The maps of the area do not give the complete details of this hike; however, the trail is indicated by a trail marker and is easy to find."

This is a fantastic meadow. It is very large, has tons of wild flowers, and almost no traffic. We spent two nights camped here over a holiday weekend and only saw 3 people. For a full trip report with pictures and video see
