Santa Fe, NM

Arroyo de los Chamisos Trail

This lovely paved trail, on the southwest side of the city, is one of the most popular for walkers and runners, and winds through a mix of urban and residential spaces. It intersects with the Santa Fe Rail Trail a little north of I-25, so combining the paths in either direction makes a good extension for anyone who prefers pavement to running on dirt. If you arrive by car, the best parking is available at the Genoveva Chavez Center or at Sam’s Club (on the west side of the trail).
