A must see for Santa Fe sunsets. There is a paved trail with a mild to moderate hike up to the cross or you can drive and park and walk to the bluff.

This place didn't really do much for me. It was kind of cool that it's right in an old neighborhood, but after you climb the hill, there's no fort. Just a metal cross. Oh well.

Took several of the hiking trails from Fort Marcy! Great views and some informative signs along the staircase from Peralta!

Lovely way to learn about history and enjoy the scenery. Beautiful view and stunning vistas. Self guided for ease, take a walk back in time.

The walk up to Old Fort Marcy and the Cross of the Martyrs is all uphill, but there are plaques along the way which give an outline of the history of New Mexico. It feels as though you're walking through a timeline, and at the...More

When we were there, there was no one around that questioned you being there. I am sure if you keep your dog on a leash and pick up after him or her there would be no problem.

There is no charge. You can take a car up to the top of the hill from the back or you can walk up the path from Paseo de Peralta from the front.
