Beautiful 3 mile easy hike.
Nice views, easy, kid friendly. We got to see some wildlife (deer, birds and bobcat). Some bikes but not too many for a Sunday hike. Overall it was very good.
This is a very nice hike to take if you need something fast... there are a lot of bike traffic though... but everyone was respectful. The views are beautiful! I went with my kids and dogs, and everyone had a great time!
Great trail, great length but too many bicycles
We went for a hike and it was easy. The only negative thing was the mountain bikers everywhere and they act as if they rule. Some give warnings when coming up behind you and others don't. Also even with a warning they don't adjust their speed. I would rather hike else where but if you want an easy hike, this is it. Not much shade coverage.
A scenic trail with great views of ABQ and the Sandis. Majority of people where mountain biking, so it is important to check behind you as you hike- but most were thankful when we would step off the trail for them to pass. There are 2 inner paths you can take to shorten the walk if need be, so you can really hike your own hike.
Great trail for morning exercise. Not too challenging or particularly scenic. Many people biking, walking, and running in the morning. Good system of trails in this area to adjust length of you are working up to a more difficult home in the Sandias.
Beautiful views of Albuquerque and Sandia Mts. Take lots of water and wear a hat, there is no shade and even though marked easy it could prove dangerous without these, especially if hiking in the afternoon during the summer.
It was very nice, there are a lot of mountain bike riders coming through and the route to stay on is 305, which goes out and back. If you want to make a loop you can take 305 to 365 and once the bike riders pass by you may be fortunate enough to catch a snake slithering by. :)
Plenty of cyclists but all traffic was very friendly, some of the more primitive trails were a little less crowded. Nice views.
Awesome trail, enjoyed the scenary and the challenge
