Atalaya Mountain Trail

Cool trail... shaded in some areas, was a bit rough on my schnauzers... heat can be pretty intense. I took the "easy" route but it is still considerably steep for some distances. I think the easy route actually adds some pretty nice additional views and a bit of distance. You want to bring a lot of water during the summer as the heat can dehydrate you quickly. Be in decent physical shape if you want to summit... I certainly did see some folks turn back before the summit as they were not able to deal with the elevation gain.

Nice relatively flat easy trail. There are a bunch of connecting trails at this location. There's a small pond and a creek which was relatively dry during the time we hiked it.

This was our first hike in the Santa Fe area and it was a greater starter. Definitely helpful to have a compass. We actually dID 8 miles and it took about 5 hours, but we we're adjusting to the altitude.

Easy short hike to the cliff dwellings. There's an outdoor kennel on site that you can keep your dogs in during the hike. The cost is $3.00 per person, change is a only available at the visitor center 2 miles up the road. No food or candy allowed on the trail.

We hiked this trail in August 2014. They are doing some construction near the lake, not sure if that's why the water was so low. Nice hike around the lake, some areas were
overgrown.

A gorgeous place - scenery reminiscent of the Adirondacks. We hiked for about 2 miles total, up the steps by the waterfall, up the hill beyond the meadow the waterfall runs out of, and then east along a fence line. After a bit we broke back across another meadow and picked up the Willie White trail to come back to the waterfall. Our favorite spot was a little march full of Sacramento Mountain Thistles, which were swarming with Hummingbird Moths and butterflies.
FYI - at the time of this writing the trail map which is displayed for this trail is nowhere near the right place.

Tent Rocks is a beautiful place to visit. Pack a lunch and enjoy the quietness. When I did this hike it was HOT so I recommend bringing lots of water and sunblock. The early morning views and sunsets are beautiful as well. Don't forget your camera.

Stewart Lake Loop (Trail 254, 271)

I went camping for the weekend and was unexpectedly asked to go on a day hiking adventure which ended up to be Stewart Lake. The views hiking on the trail leading up to Stewart Lake was beautiful in every direction. Not many hikers on the trail so I imagine we went at a great time. The Lake was peaceful, a great place to relax and read for a bit before descending back to our campsite. Beautiful place to see!
