Amazing place to (hike to) see the sunset. A good hour jog up and you can see surprisingly far... it's truly a beautiful view.

I love this trail! Sometimes I hike it, sometimes I've run it. Did it Today, up and then back down, in 3 and a 1/2 hours total!

Nice trail, just what I needed to see how my achy knee would hold up to some climbing.

Amazing trail! Very little snow and ice left on the trail in the shade in early April. Views are breathtaking.

Few inches of snow on steep section approaching the ridge. Possible to do without poles and traction, but these would’ve come in handy. Basically glissading down certain sections. Butt kicker with nearly 4000’ in gross total elevation gain.

Nice loop with few people. Most of the trail had light snow - be careful not to lose the Armijo trail through the flagged area. About 2.5 hours starting from the Sulphur Canyon lot.

Neat trail at a neat National Monument. Lots of petroglyphs to look at. Easy walk in sand and no shade.

Probably saw about 20 mountain bikers today, not a big deal though. This is an easy trail, decent scenery.

Easy walk without elevation gain. Lots of dogs and people along the trail as well as bicycle riders. Veer off trail to the Nature Center and learn about the surrounding vegetation. Also fun to watch the turtles in the channel.

Last two miles is pretty snowy. Still able to make it through with just tennis shoes, though. A great hike as always especially with tramming down.

Trail head has some construction going on so we opted to use the tramway trail to get to la luz and the tram is going to be closed for two weeks or so after today.

Wow what a different view of the Sandias! Beautiful. St the top you can decide to go right and explore knifes edge or left and explore another good bouldering spot. Very beautiful.

Great easy trail with lots of petroglyphs. Took my dog with me, and she enjoyed it. Make sure to take water. Unfortunately, there is a lot of vandalism and fake petroglyphs. Some are obvious, but some are harder to tell if they are fake or real. I played it safe by only taking pictures of ones I knew were real because they were in the brochure!

I thought this trail was just ok. The scenery is not spectacular and the road is not too far off so you always hear cars. Nice little bits of nature though.

Nothing taxing about this trail. Weather in late October was perfect. Fall color in the cottonwood trees was spectacular. There were lots of bike riders and not too many hikers. You can take your pick of distances. Very do-able with kids and dogs (old people too)!

The best part of this hike was seeing a tarantula crossing the path. The petroglyphs we're interesting, but I didn't realize they were all drawn sporadically on boulders.

Amazing hike!! Super windy day, but so enjoyable. Took roughly 6 hours to the top and back down. From mile 5 on is very snowy and icy. Just take your time and bring lots of water. Highly recommend this trail!

Nice Trail. Flat trails. Liked the petroglyphs. Saw a chipmunk.

Easy trail took 40 mins had to pay close attention just to notice petroglyphs

Pretty easy trail some wildlife

Great hike! I’ve gone both directions and going down is harder in the joints. Very rewarding and challenging hike. Tops out at over 10k feet. I do this hike at least once a year! Takes a group of us five hours to go up.

Quite fun!

The parking lot was well kept, no pay station. Trail head was well marked along with the trail. This mornings weather was cast over which was very beneficial cause the Petroglyphs were easy to spot. Can't wait to return to run this trail.

Nice walk through a canyon full of history. Easy stroll appropriate for all ages.

very scenic. Good views of Albuquerque area. lots of scramble but not dangerous. Go slow and enjoy!
