The Dale Ball Trails involve more than 22 miles of looped running and mountain biking trails. Located just outside of Santa Fe, the trails offer “rolling piñon and juniper-covered foothills” which might make runners feel like they are sprinting through an iconic painting of the Southwest. Locals delight in the challenging switchbacks and at-times steep running on both hard rock and dirt surfaces. The single-track trails are divided up into the Dale Balls Trail Central, a 6.3-mile moderate trail with some short, steep climbs. Then there’s the Dale Balls Trail North, an easier, shorter jaunt just 3.7 miles long.
