This is my all time favorite place to hike!! It is difficult, and you will need to prepare to go all the way to the top. make sure to bring water and some snacks if you plan on going all the way to the top. Going downhill is pretty steep, but as long as you watch your footing it's worth the trip!!! You have to pay $1 weekdays, $2 weekends, and $26 for a monthly pass, to enter this trail.

Beautiful trail, and gorgeous views. I would recommend dressing warm if you're heading on the trail during winter time. Around 4:15 pm the winds start to pick up and it gets very chilly.

Great trail. This is my first time in awhile going out hiking again. But this was a good choice. Has a good incline with some rocky areas. But mostly a nice dirt path to walk on.

Trail was easy but the petroglyphs were amazing. While they were not intricately carved, they were fascinating nevertheless. Vistas of the Tularosa Basin and surrounding mountains were fantastic. Well worth the visit!

Great views and definitely good for the family!

Peaceful walk, not strenuous at all. Ground was even, kid friendly. Pretty muddy this time of year though.

easy walk for a short excursion to get away from the city for a bit. beautiful landscape, well-maintained trails and not busy during the week.

drove all the way from Rio Rancho, it's closed! BY

I felt like I was on another planet out here. This place is so cool. I loved it.

Did this in snowshoes. The trail up to the Nambe Lake trail split is manageable without them, but after that they're definitely necessary. Last mile is rough, even in snow shoes. Bring plenty of water and some snacks. It's a fun hike with some sweet scenery at the top.
