Enjoyed the trail, great views. Didn’t find the springs...

Nice easy hike. If you want to avoid the bikers I recommend taking the side trails. Very pleasant overall.

Take water , snacks and get ready for a pretty intense hike, a good amount of climbing and amazing views. stay on the trail and be mindful of your GPS or alltrails app as there are places where it is easy to get lost. my buddy and I took 2 cars and had a few "accidental detours" that added 2 hours... ouch

great short hike with cool views of the hills. good for beginners

Great hike to do on a snowy Sunday. The tram was busy but the rest of the trail was empty.

This hike has the best view from the top! It snowed on us the whole way. One thing it doesn’t tell you is when you reach what looks like end on this app you reach a intersection and go through the fence and it takes you to the top! Great time for sure

Great trail loop. Snow is still melting so it was muddy Nd sometimes icy in early March. I was glad I had my spikes with me.

Very nice hike. Easy and relaxing.

This should be designated as a bicycle trail as the number of cyclists greatly outnumber hikers, at least midday on a Sunday. It's hard to hike when you have to get off the trail every minute or two to let bikers (who ignore the signs that say bikers yield to hikers) pass. This was our first time on the trail and had a difficult time following the map because the trails are not well-marked. There are a few places where two or three trails branch off and there are no signs telling which is the one you want. The map and signs are great if you know where you're going already, but not helpful for a first timer. The scenery is nice but it's not an enjoyable hiking experience.

Great loop, but the hike up the crest spur is pretty steep, more on a moderate level. Fairly exposed to wind most of the time, if it's blowing.

Gorgeous views, quiet trail - not a lot of traffic. All uphill until you turn around- worth the scenery

Great views

great for running, despite the rocks it's doable.

Nice and established trail. Many mountain bikers on trail.


Fun and easy hike!

It’s not so nice during the winter when everything around is brown.

More like a walk than a hike but very enjoyable

Fairly easy hike. Enjoyed seeing the falls frozen over. Step carefully at the falls as it was icy and slushy there.

The top of the mountain has a gorgeous skyline view of the mountains and the City of Albuquerque. My German Shepherd also enjoys this trail. At the trailhead, they do have a bathroom facility. I recommend you go early, as there is limited parking.

Checked out the trail today! A gorgeous morning on a great trail. It was a constant incline but nothing strenuous. The views are great. Traffic was low on the way up, but higher on the way down. Snow on the top. Can’t wait to hike it again.

Well marked trail, steady incline, great views. Snow at the very top.

South facing trail that has a good incline. Definitely want to hike during the cooler months. Nice views at the top of trail.

Well maintained, but a very popular trail. Everyone there was nice and the mountain bikers were well behaved for trail sharing. However, pet owners either don't pick up poop, or they bag it then leave the bags along the trail. We saw at least 10 bags of crap.

This is now one of my favorite hikes in Albuquerque! Beautiful.

Beautiful views. Great place to enjoy the sunset!

Nice way to spend an afternoon

great hike and some good exercise accompanied with ace views. definitely a popular trail so don't come here for solitude but in all ways a nice way to spend two hours outdoors.

and for those so inclined the trail connects to others if you wanna keep trekking....

Nice trail even in late December. No snow unusual for this time of year. Some of the trails that were off shoots of the main trail were no longer open and there were some trails that were available that were not on this map at all. Got concerned they were not going to reconnect so had to bush whack back toward the main trail. Thank goodness for GPS.
