Located north of Cerrillos Village, Cerrillos Hills State Park is a day-use park with 5 miles of trails for hikers, mountain bikers and horseback riding offering spectacular views of Northern New Mexico as well as safe access to dozens of pre-1900's mines. Just 18 miles south of Santa Fe and 40 miles north of Albuquerque, Cerrillos Hills takes you back to a quieter time and wilder place.
