When you live in the city, you may find it is hard to get away and truly immerse yourself in nature. Fortunately, there is one hiking trail in New Mexico that will get you outdoors and away from the bustle of city life. Plus, this hiking trail will provide the most mesmerizing views of Santa Fe. The Sun Mountain Trail is a short hiking trail in New Mexico, but one where the journey is worth every single step.
It can be tempting to avoid portions of this trail and take potential shortcuts. However, please be respectful on the Sun Mountain Trail (and every other hiking trail in New Mexico!) to avoid disrupting plant and animal life. For a complete map of this trail in New Mexico, click here.
