Gorgeous views! Go early, as it gets crowded, but oh, so worth it! The tall walls or slots give shade too, so you don’t melt. High stepping towards the end make this a more challenging hike, but also interesting. Highly recommend!

Love this trail! If you want to spend the night somewhere before you hike then stay in Santa Fe or possibly North Albuquerque. Don’t bring a pet and bring $5 cash. They don’t take credit cards.

It’s a great quick hike but still a little strenuous. We went at 10:00 on a Saturday and we were done by 12:00. It was not very crowded at 10 but on our way back down it was pretty crowded. I would agree with the other comments.. go as early as you can!

I have a question, y'all. I've been day hiking intensely for a while, but my navigation skills aren't exactly stellar. I really want to see Jones Park and I've been looking for it for a while. Looking at my pocket guide map, I thought the best way to do that would be to catch 7 bridges and then turn west on 667 (at the junction of 622a and 667). Each time I've tried, I do something like this: reach the end of trail 622 (which starts as 7 bridges), continue through the impressive stand of aspen trees uphill and to the north (ie to the right if you're coming up the trail). I'm able to reach the place where 666 used to intersect 667 (before that section of 666 was closed for trout preservation). I then go west on 667. Yesterday I got pretty far on 667 before I had to call it a day because it was getting late. Does anyone have any advice for me? What I've seen is beautiful, but I've become very intent on finding the ~mysterious~ Jones park. Would I have better luck just taking 667 from High drive until I come to Jones Park? Any help is appreciated!

Favorite trail to date.

I really enjoyed this trail. it was beautiful and a great place to take friends from out of state who aren't too sure about doing a too intense hike. I'll be back!

This is a bucket-list must do hike! If you’re in the area, make this the one you do!

Favorite trail on my week in New Mexico thus far. I am not that adventurous but found this to be the right mix of challenge and beauty. The trail is very popular but worth it. The National Park pass gets you in free, otherwise it’s $5. There was another road leading up to the Memorial which was closed. I would have liked to explore that.

1,000 spur trails but enjoyable!

I've walked this trail twice, once in summer and once in the winter. Gorgeous both times.

This was a beautiful hike we did with our two sons, ages 7 and 9. We loved walking along the creek the entire trail.

Since we weren't familiar with the area, there was some slight confusion about finding the trail. At the parking lot, you want to walk past the gated dirt road at the far end of the lot. There are two other roads--one that leads up and another that continues around the edge of the mountain--these are not the ones that you want to take. You'll walk about a half mile and the dirt road will turn off to the left. There's a "622" mile marker that might be tricky to see, but just past that you'll see a dark metal sign for North Cheyenne Cr. Trail. This means you're on the right track.

We hiked the trail a few days after it had snowed, so the trail was partially covered in snow, which didn't pose much of a problem until coming back down the trail. It was very slippery in parts, and we all ended up slipping and falling at one point, but no injuries. It ended up being one of the highlights of our trip.

Nice hike, has lots of traffic

The waterfall that this hike leads to is awesome!

The trail to the falls wasn't my favorite, but the ending spot was great, and we only saw 3 other people the whole time. Took us less than an hour and a half to do the whole loop. We parked at the lake/gazebo in town and then walked up Foster Rd to the trailhead. Thomas trail is a steady climb up to the falls. The trail was a little icy the last .5 miles to the falls, so wear some good boots. We came down Belvidere Road to get back to town.

Overall a great, short hike.

Keep going after the 7th bridge all the way to Jones park. It will be well worth it. Careful on the loose scree on parts of the trail.

This place was beautiful and the hike was not difficult. I don’t think the map on the app matches up with the actual trail in all places. One minute the app would show us on the trail and the next minute we’d be way off. Most of the trail was pretty well defined, but we found ourselves in some areas that were questionable as to where the trail was, as well as being overgrown with brush, and we went through some really steep, rocky spots. Luckily there were a lot of cairns along the way. Lots of offshoot trails as well. I loved the rock formations and the views and I would definitely do this hike again.

Rangers will push people out of the trail at around 4pm! We arrived too late around 3:30 and only hiked half the trail before being intercepted by a ranger, together with a large contingency of turned back hikers. Even so, the first half was already spectacular. Sandy ground and slot canyon allowed only one person to pass in many places. The cone shaped features are well worth the trip.

It's a really great open space park surrounded by neighborhoods, great for a casual hike if you live in the area and don't want to spend a lot of time getting somewhere.
Some trails are well marked, some are not, there are many "unofficial" trails crisscrossing everywhere, so it's easy to get off track. Very fun though, lots of cool rock formations and different trails to explore.

Does anyone have any idea when this trail will reopen....used to be a favorite...

Love this trail. Went with my wife and 4 year old daughter last week and hiked all the way to the Seventh Bridge! We are not in any sort of shape and took frequent breaks along the way. Beautiful views and terrain. Lots of streams and birds. Luckily, there were plenty of locals to keep us on track, as the trail is not marked.

Directions: Go all the way up the mountain, then park in the dirt parking area. Should be plenty of cars parked there. Trail will be dirt with a gate in front of it. Walk the trail about a 1/2 mile, take a right when the trail forks, then continue to follow trail 622. (If you go left at the fork, you will end up at St. Mary’s Falls.) The trail does keep going after the Seventh Bridge (I was told you could climb all the way up to Pikes Peak) but we stopped there and began the hike back to the car.

Awesome hike! Great scenery! Get there early, as it gets quite crowded anytime after 11am, slot canyons are difficult to maneuver with other people on trail. Take a camera!
Wear good shoes, saw some guy doing this hike in flip flops, not good.

Took the fam and we all really enjoyed the hike.

Fun. Parking is tight. Though one can park at two other trail heads.

We headed out on the trail early which allowed for ample photo ops while hiking through the canyon and up to the scenic overlook.

Descending was very crowded as there were so many people in the narrow canyon.

Definitely a must do hike as the views were spectacular.

Our favorite hike yet, this one had it all. Mountain climb, slot canyon and amazing rock formations. Would probably rate this one on the harder side of moderate though due to the steep boulder climbs at the end.
