The Ridge Trail dissects the preserve north/south along a prominent ridge. The trail offers the hiker or biker spectacular vistas of the Sangre de Christo Mountains and the Galesteo Basin.
The Galisteo Basin Preserve is a conservation-based community development located 14 miles south of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Embracing nearly 10,000 acres of sculpted arroyos, craggy sandstone formations and vast savannah grasslands, the preserve is place of refuge and sustenance for wildlife and people.
With more than 28 miles of publicly-accessible trails open to hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians, the Galisteo Basin Preserve is beloved and actively enjoyed by thousands of residents and visitors. It is a place of community and quiet reflection: a place of renewal and inspiration.
