hey just wanted to point out that the turnoff coordinates are incorrect and lead to a private residential area. The turnoff is at 35.828399,-106.595902.

Easy to follow trail, lots of up hill climbing. Mostly full sun, so start your hike early. We'll be back.

Small trickle of water. Perfect to attach a baby on you and walk to the falls and back. Wouldn’t go further then that with a baby. Saw lots of dogs. First hike I’ve done here since I moved from California. Reminded me a of Ojai and a little bit of home. Would like to know when the falls have more water.

Fantastic views of Sandia Peaks. Fairly shady but excellent work out!

Great hike for kids and dogs. Nice and shaded most of the way. The cave and the trickle falls are a nice little sit down spot for a water break.

Beautiful trail...

We love this hike!!! Great for kids. :)

Trail closed as of 8/10/18 due to heavy rains. check to see if it’s open before going

Small trickle of water, nice greenery, and overall good little hike.

Worth the trek. Navigation gets tricky after Domingo baca trail as you head towards the TWA crash site. Highly recommend to keep an eye on waypoints.

This is an absolutely fabulous trail! The end gets really steep with a lot of loose gravel and dirty. It can be slipper and difficult for some. My word of advice would be to go as early as possible - they only let a number of people into the park at a time and the canyon can get extremely congested as it can be only a foot or so wide at points

Nice quiet trail with butterflys and hummingbirds . Falls are trickling today.

easy and good trail for even first day

Need more trail markers , otherwise beautiful trail

The waterfall was beautiful. I couldn’t find away down that was safe for my dog but other than that it was an amazing hike

Quick and easy. You can walk to the top of the “falls” and get a pretty view as well.

So much fun for all ages!

This is a must do hike. Great slot canyon and hike to the peak to over look the tent rock canyon and surrounding vista.

Amazing! My favorite place in New Maxico. Be sure to arrive earlier, as the staff began to clear the trail before 4pm. I think it's too early. They should give visitors more time to experience this great spot.

So I’m fairly new to hiking/backpacking with only about 100 miles under my feet so far. With that said, however, parts of this trail were pretty hard compared to trails with a “hard” classification. My daughter is very active and even she had a tough time. This trail is BEAUTIFUL and totally worth the sweat and effort despite my previous statement. If, like me, you’re newer to the hobby just be aware that this will be challenging and then GO!!!!

This hike is not for the faint of heart. It’s very difficult, but the views are breath-taking. We started at the tram trail (2.5 miles) which then connected to the La Luz Trail so we did about 10 miles total including the trek to the Tram. This is definitely not a hike for beginners, but is a great challenge. We did this hike in preparation for Wheeler Peak in September. If you hike this on a weekend and ride the tram down expect to wait about 45 mins or more to get on a tram back down the mountain.

This is a nice desert walk. There are a few petroglyphs along the way and many at the halfway point. There are almost no inclines. This would be a great family hike. It also seems like it would be a nice jog. The rabbits that went bolting across the path were really fun to see. There is no water and no porta potties along the path, but there were bathrooms at the beginning.

Loved the uphill trail! The views were fantastic! Upon arrival 3 gorgeous springs were seen with Crystal clear water and little minnows that nibble at you, it was quite relaxing and a nice place to have lunch and hang a hammock. Further down I wasn't able to locate any additional springs but beautiful small waterfalls here and there.

I can't offer a review but a heads up. they won't let you pass the gate after 300 330. Shorthanded and closing early

Lots of petroglyphs and wildlife - jackrabbits, hummingbirds, glowers & assorted plant life. Easy walk.

We loved this hike and did both the slot canyon trail and the cave trail. We arrived just after 8 a.m. on a Friday and had no trouble parking. There weren't many people on the hike up, and it was easy navigating the narrow passages. Quite a bit of scrambling up rocks for the last 15 minutes or so, which definitely required some effort. Slippery going down that same section. Beautiful scenery throughout the hike and at the top. $5 cash to enter. Portable toilets on site. Take water and snacks. Total time was about 2.5 hours for both trails. So glad we went early!

From the tight canyons to the top. Some tough spots. As everyone says “go early”.

Great trail.

Beautifully interesting scenery along the way made this hike amazing. We did it in October and the skies were gorgeous blue and the weather was warm, not hot or humid. Would definitely do this hike again. We got great photos along the way!
