The route provides excellent views of Monument Valley and the Rampart Range. The New Santa Fe Trail is rated 2B. The New Santa Fe trail is not particularly suited for small wheeled strollers because of the gravel surface. Please consider the fire danger before smoking. Pets must be leashed and cleaned up after. This is a combination walking, biking and horse trail. Carrying water and sunscreen is recommended. Water and restrooms available at the Safeway Start/Finish. Please allow 2+ hours to enjoy the walk.
