We had such a good time even thou at some point we've got lost!

Good trail. We picked this hike out of the Falcon Guide for the local area. The last 2/3 of the hike have not been rehabbed from the 2011 fire. Your best bet is to hike up to the saddle out of Turkey Creek and either turn back or go up to Monte Vista Peak.

I haven't hiked EVERYTHING around here, but I love everything I've seen--even the NM isn't usually crowded, and the recreation areas surrounding (Turkey Creek etc.) are usually a great place to get away from the world and get lost in some amazingly beautiful mountains and rock formations.
