On my next visit to Santa Fe, I would like to visit some Ghost Towns. Where is the best to do this? What are some names. Are they on private or public lands? Thanks in advance.

If you search on the term: "New Mexico Ghost Towns" you will find there are a dozen or more web sites with information. Here is but one site, maintained by the NM Tourism Dept:

And one specific for the Santa Fe area:

Head south of Santa Fe on Hwy 14, aka The Turquoise Trail. Cerrillos has some inhabitants, but the main street is pretty much abandoned. Waldo is just west of Cerrillos but I don't think much of it is left. Madrid could have been a ghost town, but was resurrected by hippies in the late '60s - early '70s and old miner's shacks and hotels have been revived - a fun place to visit. Further on south is the old town of Golden - I think it qualifies as a ghost town. Seeing all of these is an easy (and beautiful) day trip from Santa Fe.
