Loved this pretty and varied hike to the Rio Grande. Only downside is that it's near a shooting range and the sound of echoing gunshots was a little unsettling.

Nice climb. However the last part of trail was not in good condition.

Easy, flat. nice view of old santafe dam

Good steep hike for us Okies. Nothing technical. Hiked to the top of the ski lift--about a mile. Nice views and beautiful trees.

Great hike! easy to start. Can be difficult as you get closer to the top. Plan on minimum 3 hours and for those of us that take pictures plan on 4. It's worth the struggle to get to the top. Don't give up!

We went up Telephone canyon, which I imagine would have been beautiful before the fire, but was mostly sad. The crest trail gave us a view of the other side of the mountain that was beautiful. The miner's road was beautiful with fall colors, but the rocks were too big to step on like gravel and too small to go from rock to rock...it's an ankle twisting nightmare. The last stretch down Eagle Creek was gorgeous and made us glad to be finishing on a high note. Overall, this was a nice hike. The gate was closed to the little community of cabins around the trailheads, so it adds an extra mile (1/2 mile in, 1/2 mile out) to the hike.

Makes for a great workout and lots of fun good downhill rips. It's a great trail.

loved the ice caves, view from crater was pretty nice. Easy Trail

I'm an active 72 and a moderately active peak bagger from Florida Got on the trail at 8 and off at 4. As a state high point this was well worth the effort. The worst part was walking out of the parking lot at 10,00 ' and 28 degrees, breathing hard at the first minor uphill. Surprisingly it never got much worse. I was breathing hard the whole way but I was able to make my slow steady pace up to the top in about 3 1/2 hours. I stopped to talk to everyone I met on the trail, and found 4 geocaches which required a .8 mile side trip around Willams lake. It's a tough hike but if you allow enough time it's doable even for a flat lander. Those views above tree line and the summit are killer.

Went with a friend. All the way to the end. Walked through the arch. While a little parched, in the wind blowing through we stood feeling renewed... How was it good?
it was easily was...

This trail was awesome. A few spots were a little challenging but it was so beautiful, it was totally worth it!
