Situated eight miles northeast of Santa Fe, the lovely Hyde Memorial State Park is your open door to experiencing the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.
Visit during the warm summer months and hike through the untouched New Mexico wilderness, through the forested hillsides where the shade affords relief and perspective on the great outdoors. The park elevation reaches an impressive 9,400 feet, granting your group unimpeded panoramic views of the surrounding area. During the winter, tubing on the snow-slick mountain sides is a popular activity for adventurous visitors, as well as sledding, snow shoeing, and much more.
Hyde Memorial State Park was New Mexico's very first state park and holds a special place in the hearts of the locals. The beautiful location and historic attractions therein are wonderfully preserved for your enjoyment as well as for its own integrity. Visitors often come for the 4.2 miles of hiking trails, bird watching opportunities, and beautiful picnicking spots with picturesque vistas.
Groups may camp at the 50 developed campsites, seven of which have electrical hookups for RVs and trailers. There are public restrooms, though no running water, so be sure you come prepared!
