Santa Fe Canyon Preserve Interpretive Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This hike, tucked into the Santa Fe River canyon in the bed of a former reservoir, is very close to downtown Santa Fe and is suitable for children. With 190 acres of open space in a thriving bosque of cottonwood and willows, it is one of the last unspoiled riparian areas along the Santa Fe River.
Under the ownership and management of The Nature Conservancy, there have been increasing efforts at beaver habitat restoration, and sightings are increasingly common. In addition, 140 species of birds have been found among the wetlands and ephemeral pools.
Dogs are not allowed."
