Easy, flat. nice view of old santafe dam
This is a great beginner hike. The parking lots has plenty of spaces and the trail is well marked until the end where it is a bit confusing how to get back to the parking lot. Now that I know the landmark, I won't have a problem. The trail is lush and green and a lot of fun to explore. I didn't see a ton of wildlife, but more than most of the mountain trails without water features.
