Looking for a beautiful area to explore and enjoy incredible vistas? Then go check out the Galisteo Basin Preserve.
Top a ridge and find Moab-like red dirt and slickrock, or descend and end up in a waist-high grass-land that looks like an African savanna. The topography among the 50 miles of hiking, mountain-biking, and equestrian trails in this 20-square-mile open space is diverse and interesting. With limited shade and water, you may want to go in the cooler morning hours or pick an overcast day to visit.
For mountain bikers and hikers alike, the trails are well maintained, varied, and challenging.
