Taos 2017 Map

Great spring hike, but do wish there was better signage along the way...thank goodness for snow and footprints to let us know we were still on the right path. If I was to do it again this time of year, I'd take my snowshoes.

Love the camp sites
Looks like the bridge to get to the picnic tables was washed out?

The water is gorgeous at the bottom and the hike back to the top makes drinking a cold one at the end totally guilt free

I grew up in northern New Mexico so I’m no stranger to scenic mountain drives, but this one really surprised me and I considered it jaw dropping in places.

Somehow only hiked 5.75. But enjoyable without being difficult. Saw elk and mule deer.

Worth it, but definitely not an easy trail.

Absolutely loved this trail. So much to see, many vista views of angel fire, eagles nest, and trees! However in December it is easy to lose the trail so plan for extra time on the trail.

Main picture is not this place.
This trail is more a dirt/gravel road for off-roading. Road had some ice/snow in some spots and was pretty easy.

Did this stretch of road on our way from Taos to Colorado Springs. Typical SW canyon country driving. I think the section from Taos to the Angel Fire cut off is just about in the same category. Both nice drives.

In no way shape or form is this trail easy. It was a fun hike, but definitely not easy.

not very shaded. not a good trail for small dogs. more dead fallen trees than I prefer on a trail. not my fave in this area.

Good times with the kids.

Easy trail with great views from high up overlooking Angel Fire. Writing this in Aug 17, the trail is clear and varies between single and double track. Dogs ARE allowed.

loved it

Not for biking. I did search for mountain bike trails and Pecos Falls came up. After driving primitive roads all the way back here we find out bikes are not allowed on the trail.

Great trail and wonderful views. Use this apps pro map as there are many unmarked side trails that can be confusing.

Hiked lots of times. Not difficult but lovey.

Not a great hike, hot dirt road with a lot of broken glass. The end result is a run down old series of pools fed by a natural spring. It's kind of cool but not something I would do again. Better off going to John Dunne bridge for a dip

Great views and a challenging hike without being overly strenuous. Afternoon. Rain did make the trail a bit slippery but worth getting wet for.

Spectacular drive! Inspiring and beautiful. Lots of trails in this area.

The reward at the bottom was not worth the physical exertion to climb back up the cliff.
This is not an easy hike.

not easily marked. needs more markings

Good trail, best view is on Elliot Barker trail at the back of the loop, walk about 2 miles and it gives you an unobstructed view of Angel Fire.

nice easy hike. Not well marked.

I am not sure what the other reviewer's experienced, but it was not what we saw. the trail is a dirt road then after walking through someone's property it becomes undicernable as to what is a trail when we tried to stick to the line on the app it said we were at the end only to be looking at dead end. after wondering way off what it said was the way, we found what appeared to be or what used to be a pool and the stream next to it was warm. but looked nothing like the picture or the description. we have used this app many times and this is the first bad experience.

I have thought about this place quite often. It looks a lot different since 1971. It takes me back to another time. Many hour were spent in those pools. I miss those people I was with. Only two of us left. I will be back to visit soon. It says to enter a star rating before submitting this. LOL At night looking up...More stars than could be counted by man. Only god knows how many. In 1971...5 stars

Beautiful drive outside Taos. Drove this road in the snow one April, made it especially beautiful.

an easy hike, isolated from crowds. good for dogs too.

I'm not sure if I was at the right trail... we drove up and found the sign that read OSHA Canyon Trail but after we parked we didn't realize that the trail was on the other side of the river and there was no bridge to cross. After we passed the river and got passed the mud hole the rest of the trail was great. The first major incline was a little rocky but smooth from there on. I would definitely go back but I wouldn't consider it easy, especially if you have children or elders with you.
