I’ve hiked in these mountains since I was young and I had never been on this trail till yesterday. The trail was beautiful, it’s starts off near a burn scar and slowly climbs to the crest of the manzanos. Lots of wildflowers and wildlife. It was great. I wish there was a place to really get a view at the top but we didn’t find one. The trail took us about 3.5 hours but we stopped and enjoyed the views multiple times.

Word to the wise, careful heading this way in January (my own fault) the service road to the mountain base was closed. Snow and mud made it underivable. I still enjoyed a hike up the road to the mountain base though.

Hiked up to the top on June 2nd with my brother. The trail is easy to follow and there is an awesome forest of aspen towards the top. It makes for a great place to bring a lunch and relax, which is what we did. Make sure to bring plenty of water and sunscreen.

Had a great time, and the dogs loved it too! Easy to follow, bring water and lunch to have a picnic in the aspens at the top!

Rode horse back to the Crest trail. Beautiful vistas, very difficult in places, I got off the horse at one point and walked as it got real rough! Not for the novice rider!

This is a very nice trail. It's a pretty steep climb with great views of the Estancia basin. You will pass an area with large rock faces. After 2 miles you will start seeing lots of large aspen groves. Makes for a beautiful fall hike. This trails ends at the crest and a nice view of the back side of the Manzano's. There is not a peak near by.
