Hiked this on April 7th, 2019. This was a solid trail length for a brief day hike, and offered great views in almost every direction at/around the peak (though the trail itself is a bit average, hence the 4 stars). The trail itself begins with a low grade, but gradually gets steeper and rockier. The last remnants of snow are hanging on, so there are a few patches on the path that need to be crossed, but not enough to be a deterrent if you don't mind. Areas around the snow can get pretty muddy, but the rocky nature of the trail allows for traction despite this. Near the top the trail forks leading to the Saddle or Wild Rivers Overlook. If you have time, I recommend hiking both paths, as they offer very different views. The Overlook is the longer leg of the two, and gives a view out over the mesa towards the Rio Grande. The Saddle can be reached very quickly and looks out over Questa. There is plenty of shade at the top and rocks to sit on if you want to rest.
