Santa Fe Trails Reopened

The Dale Ball Trail System is one of a number in Santa Fe that are being closed due to fire danger

The Dale Ball Trail System is now reopened after being closed for several weeks due to fire danger


The City of Santa Fe is reopening all closed trails, parks and open spaces, effective immediately in conjunction with today's expiration of the Emergency Resolution previously approved by the Governing Body. The rainfall on Thursday night, and predicted rains over the weekend and next week, allow for a safe reopening of the trails, at this time, as long as fire precautions and restrictions continue to be observed. 

City officials will monitor the actual precipitation received, as well as proper use of the trails and adherence to fire restrictions, to determine if future closure orders need to be implemented.

The city-wide Fire Restrictions that were initially implemented in March are still in effect. They include

A ban on the sale and use of most fireworks, a ban on smoking in public parks, on trails and in recreation areas. There is also still a ban on using charcoal barbeque grills in public parks and ban on open burning.
