This trail offers a breathtaking view all the way from its beginning to the end. It is not a loop, so you have to retrace your steps back to the parking lot. Caution should be exercised while hiking due to very strong winds. Otherwise, it's a great easy hike with the gorgeous landscape.

Overall this is a beautiful, quick hike. The views of the black lava rocks and Rio Grand were spectacular. This is a very flat hike. Our biggest complaint is the mud. It's worth doing once, especially if you aren't used to the altitude.
