This Easy Fall Hike In New Mexico Is Under 2 Miles And You’ll Love Every Step You Take

Fall might pass by quickly in the Land of Enchantment, but before the bright yellow leaves of the aspen trees go away, one of the best ways to see the foliage is to take a nature hike. This hike is under two miles, so it’s the perfect length for anyone of any ability. This trail goes right through one of Santa Fe’s most beautiful nature preserves and is full of wildlife, ponds, and trees, so you’ll love every single step.
