GALISTEO BASIN PRESERVE– 20 minute drive from Pueblo Bonito b&b inn: Commonweal Conservancy has constructed the largest publicly-accessible, privately-owned trail network in the American Southwest. The GBP trails gracefully traverse the savannah grasslands, sandstone ridge lines and arroyos of an iconic landscape in northern New Mexico.
GLORIETTA PASS TRAILS: 15 minute drive from Pueblo Bonito b&b inn: A hidden secret (almost)! Trailhead off of I-25 north of Glorietta exit/south of Lamy exit on west side of highway. Beautiful ponderosa pines follow a small stream with awesome rock formations and crystal blue skies. Get directions from Amy & Herb- they’ll get you there!
ASPEN VISTA TRAIL: A 6 mile forest road hike (or bike) to the top of Sangre de Cristo Mountains! Wonderful for hiking anytime of year. Start at the Aspen Vista overlook.
