The Galisteo Basin Preserve open space is planned to include 50 miles of hiking, biking, and equestrian trails. These publicly accessible trails are intended to invite exploration and celebration of this landscape by Preserve residents and visitors alike.
In its fullest expression, the Preserve trail network will be a part of a larger regional trail system that links tens of thousands of acres across Santa Fe County. Preserve trails are designed to connect with other public open-space areas and county trails, including the Santa Fe County Rail Trail.

We hope you enjoy the Galisteo Basin Preserve public trails. Please remember they are part of a fragile landscape: Stay on marked trails and roads, park only in designated areas, and carry out everything you carry in (plus dog poop).
When you explore the trails, be sure to bring plenty of water, sunscreen, and snacks—and be careful out there. Cell phone service is intermittent at the Galisteo Basin Preserve.
