A lovely stretch of shaded, tree-lined walkways and picnic tables along the Santa Fe River provides a quiet and serene oasis in the middle of busy downtown Santa Fe.

When walking along Alameda Street, where a bridge on Old Santa Fe Trail crosses the tiny Santa Fe River, there’s a lovely park and urban walking trail. There are sculptures, picnic tables, and locals use it as a dog park, so be careful where you...More

Within the very popular Plaza District you will find this approximately 2 Mile bike walk-in dog pathway. If you should get tired walk up to the book box and grab a delightful read or Meander down to the waterfall for a breathtaking casual moment

Great place to walk through the north part of the city. The river bed is dry with a soft sand base that makes walking a pleasure. Great way to experience a different view of the city.

Long linear park following the river. The trail is easy and a gradual slope. The problem I had with it was the noise. By a busy road, it really was not an escape or restful.

Anywhere you walk in Santa Fe is interesting and the walk along the Santa Fe River and the related park area is interesting and quite pretty. At our visit the river which at best is a creek was bone dry. It is worth the walk...More

there is a sitting bench about every quarter mile along the approximate four to five mile hey scenic walkway. there are inlets at every block to accommodate a wheelchair and the curb side steps are low.
