on Cerro La Jara Loop Trail

Loved this trail in the snow today! My husband, dog, and I headed out from Albuquerque for a snowy New Year's Day adventure. The loop begins right by the visitor's center. After talking with a ranger, we opted to do it with just our hiking boots - no snowshoes. That was a good decision, as the snow is very well packed. I can't imagine snowshoes being necessary or even helpful until the next significant snowfall. This distance assumes you go around the loop twice; it's close to a 1.5 mile loop. We started around 9:30 AM and were the first people out. Many more people were arriving by the time we finished. The scenery is so pretty with the snow. Definitely recommended!

great trail! wish we had brought snow shoe, after about 2.5 miles snow shoe required.

I went out on the Nordic Trail today for my first X-C skiing outing of the season. I was surprised by the number of trees that were laying across the trail because I had been on the trail about a month ago and it was clear of fallen trees on the trail. There were six large trees (aspens and pines) that blocked the trail in various locations. One was on the downhill slope near the end of the loop and the only way around it is to remove your skis and climb over it. There were also a lot of dog (coyote?) tracks and hiking boot holes that interfere with skiing. Dogs and hikers in the spring, summer and fall are not a problem but they can tear up a ski trail in the winter.

Trail is snowy but there is a nice compact route to follow without hitting deeper snow. Great for cross country skiing or snow shoeing right now too!

Good running trail through town and then a bit on dirt path. Would do it again.

The Rangers do an exceptional job of keeping this trail well-maintained so that it’s not sketchy. It’s a great trail if you are beginning to train for fitness at altitude. I wouldn’t recommend bringing children on this trail as there are some steep drop offs next to narrow trails.

Three stars for the recommendation as a cross country ski trail. The portion of this track on the east/northeast side of the Sandia Crest Trail and all connecting trails make the best collection of cross country trails in the area. I've hiked the La Luz Trail many times, but have never attempted to ski the upper portion. The drop offs and steep slopes to the west/southwest (W/SW) of the hiking trail on the west side on the ridge are too risky to include this section as a ski trail. Spikes and snow shoes may be better option for the W/SW side of the route shown. HINT: Notice the spacing on the contour lines on the W/SW side?

This is trail doesn’t have its own summit, but it leads to Gold Hill and Lobo Peak so you have a choice at the top to go left or right. Went right up Gold Hill which gave spectacular views of taos ski valley and the back side of the lobo peak trail. Loved the switchbacks and open fields at the top and the aspens. Lovely hike

Great trail. Easy and quick. The Visitor’s Center has an informative guide you can take with you.

Well well worth the hike. So beautiful

Great, easy loop trail! You get to see a lot of aspens! Right now is perfect because all the aspen trees leaves were golden yellow. Trail well marked. Just this 1 stretch of it was confusing to follow but it was brief. Maybe 1 vast look out spot where the landscape opened up. The trails view is mostly of a winding path and forest through a ton of aspen trees. The car drive up the mountain to this hiking spot has incredible views of the landscape opening up. Recommended :)

Lots of dogs. Some are off leash, but most were friendly. Stream was flowing, which was nice to see and the Aspen leaves changing colors is so pretty.

Stunning views! One of the best hikes I’ve been on around ABQ!

Easy beautiful wide trail. Perfect for the fall colors

Lovely.

So glad we did this hike after taking the tram up the mountain! Talked to a volunteer near the trailhead and she sent us on our way with great information about the hike. Some of the signage is down due to the recent (if three years is recent) construction of the restaurant up top, but it's still very easy to navigate. The trail was fantastic with amazing trees and views. The cabin perched on the edge was stunning to visit! Funny: there were three young people on the roof of the cabin boxing--gloves and all--while filming and taking photos of each other. Crazy in that kind of wind and so close to the edge, but whatever, right? We made sure to take the nature trail back in order to see the Limber Pine. It doesn't look like much, but it's the oldest tree on the mountaintop. Core samples put it at 1600 years old! Best hike of our day. Highly recommend this side trip if you're up there.

The trail was open all the way somebody cut all the deadfall from the trail.

Mellow trail with a few small rolling hills.

Very steep and kind of sketchy with loose gravely rocks on the steep spots. You go straight up up up! It’s so beautiful though. Totally worth it, even if you just get to the first meadow. I kept going to the right towards Gold Hill until I lost the trail and found a herd of cattle grazing (they were very interested in me). Also saw a lone coyote. There’s also a small waterfall off the trail about .25 miles.

Very steep hike through a beautiful pine and aspen forest with a stream running along the lower part of the trail and several lovely meadows at the top. Nice views to the south of Mt. Wheeler and the surrounding peaks.

This is a hard hike because it is steep on some places including the last quarter mile. However, the views from the meadows near the top are beautiful and you get a great sense of achievement when you reach the Lobo Peak trail. I recommend using hiking poles.
