Grand Unified Santa Fe Trails Organization

Inter-connected single track paths for walkers, bicyclists and equestrians.

The “GUSTO” initiative is an effort to study and develop an integrated and unified trail system in and around the Santa Fe area.  GUSTO’s vision is a “grand unified trail system” that allows non-motorized users to travel in a loop around the greater Santa Fe area as well as between the urban center and the periphery. The GUSTO initiative will lead community participation efforts to have a unified, sustainable trails system built around the entire metropolitan area by 2020.

GUSTO Trail Systems

SFCT is happy to embark on the GUSTO planning expedition with Santa Fe Fat Tire Society, National Park Service, Santa Fe County Horse Coalition, the City and County of Santa Fe, and many other local and regional partners interested in creating connections between our area’s various trail systems and the places where people live, work, and play.
