Trail is easy to follow until reaching the crest (follow the pink ribbons). Tons of sights and history. A cave, B-17 wreck, and early 20th century homestead plus grave site. Watch for grazing cattle. This hike is surprisingly worthwhile for a short few miles of investment. Approach trailhead via dirt road to Fourth of July campground out of Tajique. Google the trail for gps coords of various POI and directions.

This is a wonderful trail, especially in Autumn. Some of the best colors in New Mexico.

Great trail

This was a beautiful trail that had lots to explore. Could easily turn into a multiple day hike!!

This area has the best fall foliage around. combined with other trails in the area you can hike to the top for great views.

The road can be rough depending on the moister through the summer, best time to go is the fall and you will see Golds, purples, Reds, and more, worth the hike, but be prepared for crowds

It's a long winding road to get there, but a fairly easy hike and if you go in the fall when the maples are crimson, you will see some of the most breathtaking views of fall color in all of New Mexico.
