  • Atalaya trail is getting pretty crowded unfortunately. You can park at St. John's College and begin your hike there. Take water. Hiking poles are good. Wear a hat. Have good shoes with hiking tread. R...  more »
  • This is a challenging hike to the peak of Mt. Atalaya but the view from the top is well worth the effort. So beautiful to look over the town. Hiking or tennis shoes are needed as the trail is rocky an...  more »

  • This is one of Santa Fe's most popular hikes due to its physical challenge and view from the top. It's not for the casual hiker, especially if they are coming from lower altitudes. There are more scenic and easier hikes for those wanting them.
  • Fun trail... kinda difficult but we did it with a 10 month old on our backs. Takes around 4 hours but views are worth it!
  • A moderate hike with wonderful views of Santa Fe. Trail is well developed and easy to follow.

Where to stay in Santa Fe

Though the downtown area contains most of Santa Fe's finest hotels, you can find plenty of equally comfortable inns and motels just outside this busy central district. Remember also that most of the city's centrally located hotels raise their prices during the height of the tourist season, so it is essential to look for deals and make reservations well in advance. To experience the true spirit of outdoor New Mexico while on holiday, consider sleeping under the stars at a campground just a short drive from Santa Fe's major urban attractions.
