Santa Fe offers many unique hiking options for both beginners and advanced hikers looking to spend a few days in the outdoors. The city has different types of terrain for hikers to choose from, including sandy and rocky to dense forests. Some hiking trails pass through areas where there are ancient rock formations and carvings into stone. It’s impossible for someone to experience Santa Fe without taking a walk through the natural wonders.
For visitors with pets, there are many great hiking trails that permit dogs and horses to accompany owners on their adventure. The Atalaya Mountain Trail is a six-mile trail through a forest. It’s accessible for all skill levels and offers gorgeous views of the towering trees. Dogs are permitted to tag along, so long as they are leashed. Horse lovers can bring their horses to the La Tierra Trail Network, more complex with multiple trails that total more than 25 miles. Dogs are also allowed but with so much area to cover, a horse is a great decision. Remember to pack food for yourself and also any pets that come along.
The Boca Negra Canyon Trail is home to the Petroglyph National Monument, featuring petroglyphs carved into volcanic rocks. Within an hour of walking, more than 100 petroglyphs can be viewed. For history buffs or those looking to add some culture to the hike, this is the ideal situation. The terrain is sandy and rocky so pack shoes that will be durable enough for the trip.

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
Part of the allure of podcasts, aside from being able to listen during practically any activity, comes from the wide breadth of topics they cover. A well-informed host can teach you about any topic you can imagine. In the world of history podcasts, there are many in-depth, factual and entertaining casts to spend time with.
