Took Argentina Canyon Trail to the top, Hit Crest Trail and down Little Bonito. The views at the top of Argentina were awesome !

My son and I had a furlough from Roswell. Took this hike based on All Trails recommendation. It was a good choice. Beautiful day. Saw no other hikers. Went clockwise up Bontinta Canyon trail to cutoff and down Argentina Canyon.

Beautiful views from the top. Remnants of campfires from backpackers. Also saw plenty of bones (deer probably) while exploring. Cool geocache up there, too. Connects with Crest Trail at the top. Steady uphill on the way up, but not too difficult.

Really great trail. Cut over to Argentina from the Crest Trail. Views at the top were beautiful even considering the burn scars. Recent rains have left the hills green and lush. The wild iris and indian paint brush were blooming. The creek was full and gurgling. We only met one other couple along the trail. Start early as it gets warm at the top. Carry your trail map to link up with other trails. Current maps available at the Ranger Station at Cedar Creek show closed trails.

Very nice trail will beautiful scenery. Water runs along most of the trail. My dogs loved running through it and getting wet. This trail is also used for horseback riding.

Great trail! Almost the entire trail runs along a stream until you begin to zig-zag your way out of the canyon through a few switchbacks towards the top. It is a very tough hike if you're not used to the altitude. The trail is a steady incline nearly the whole way until you reach the top. But once there, there are lots of nice places to rest and have lunch among the trees with great views! Also at the top Junction point there is a no trail peak worth the climb.

This trail was very lovely! Most of it runs parallel to a little stream and is saturated with trees most of the time. There are some horse stables located down the road from the trailhead and judging by the amount of horse droppings on the trail, the Argentina Canyon trail is also frequented by horseback riders so watch your step!
