Starting at the Santa Fe ski basin at around 3000m (10,000ft), this hike takes you up to the top of Santa Fe Baldy, the highest peak near Santa Fe at 3800m (12,600ft). Used to do this hike regularly when I lived in Santa Fe. Was a pleasure to be able to do it again during a short visit.
Looking back at Lake Peak on the way up.
There's the target...
Fantastic views from the top. North to the Truchas peaks.
South to Lake Peak.
And west to the Jemez mountains and Los Alamos, across the Rio Grande valley.
The ridge back down...
