Galisteo Basin Preserve

The Galisteo Basin Preserve is located approximately 25 minutes southeast of Santa Fe and contains a series of beautiful trails that meander through excellent high desert terrain. Because of it’s lower elevation, the Preserve is great riding year round with the only exceptions being on particularly hot summer days or directly after a heavy rain or snow. Most riders can make concentric loops or follow the perimeter and ride the connector trails to make figure-eights.

Although most trails are considered beginner to intermediate, the scenery alone makes this a fantastic mountain bike destination. More information can be found on the Galisteo Basin Preserve website.
