Hike up a desert arroyo to a mountain cave. From the trailhead, follow the trail up in a S-SE direction for 0.72 miles to arrive at the cave. There are benches for resting at several scenic overlooks along the trail. This is a good trail for kids and dogs.

Nice trail, a little more challenging than just easy. All up hill and loose gravel. Great views and the dogs and my 12 year old enjoyed it.

Short but challenging. My 4 year old nephew made it to the top and back down with very few breaks.

Great trail! I have visited it several times, kids love it!! When we get to the cave we invent stories of people that used to lived there, kids enjoy this a lot. Not difficult trail, but walk with care. I'd definitely do it again.

really great hike. great views, pretty moderate hike. difficult in some spots but overall worth it. lots of loose gravel so appropriate shoes are a must. Beautiful trail.

Great hike for kids and beginners- up and back. Nice and short for visiting family members who aren't used to the elevation

Lots of fun! Loved seeing El Pasos natural beauty! It's one of the easier trails I've done no special equipment needed. Made the hike with some old Nikes and came out just fine, no scrapes whatsoever.
