Nice family hike that follows a creek the majority of the route. Not very strenuous but a moderate amount of sun exposure. Plenty of flowers. Good little day hike.

Nice trail that had excellent signage. It's a triangular loop that uses three trails to makeup the 4 miles. 150 from the trailhead off the Santa Fe ski area road, then a left onto 254 for over a mile along the creek and then 182 back to 150 and the parking lot at the trailhead.

THE APP DIRECTIONS ARE WRONG!!!!! Google "10,000 waves" then keep going straight until you see a parking lot on the left and right. The parking area is clear.

Easy, quick hike. It's shaded and right along the water, so great for dogs! Parking is limited though, so it's best to avoid high-traffic times.

the directions on this app are wrong. I could it by googling it.

This is a very simple trail, great to go with a group or alone with a four legged friend. best in Fall to Spring as there's not a lot of shade until several miles in. Nice stream to walk by.

What a beautiful, peaceful riparian trail. Not what we Californians expected to see in the southwest. Highly recommend this trail and not many hikers seem to find it.

I won't ever use this trail again. The day I went, you would not believe the numbers of well-dressed people letting their well-fed dogs poop all over the place and not bothering to clean up after them. You could not go three steps without passing a pile of dog turds. The smell was horrendous and so were the clouds of flies. Absolutely gross.

This is a beautiful easy hike that your dog can join. It is 1 mile past Bishop Lodge on Bishop Lodge road. The directions on AllTrails was wrong when I entered this review.

Went up to Apache Ridge Rd. 265 as described in the directions but was not able to find the trail head. Anyone out there who can update the directions to get to this hike?

Beautiful fairly easy hike. A big bull snake crossed our path July 30. First snake I've ever seen in a hike

Hiked this trail quite a few times! An amazing cool, green oasis... spiritual place, as is all of Santa Fe. Always past one or two other hikers, some with their dogs as well.
