I think it belongs somewhere between easy and moderate. Decent elevation gain so does require some exertion. Muddy right now but not too bad. Pleasant to be covered by trees 90% if the trail so not too hot. Amazing view.

Fun hike! Still very (very) muddy, but worth it for the view! Definitely recommend going early in the day because it does get quite busy.

Was a beautiful trail. W tried to hike it. BUT Definitely should not be marked kid friendly , there way too many mountain bikers. Steep hills where bikers flew fast at us. And not too many areas to step to the side to avoid.

Got there at 10am on a Saturday. The slot canyon was pretty clear but I can see how going later would be a pain when there's traffic in the narrows. Gorgeous hike, the rocks are amazing.

Get there very early to avoid bottle necks in the narrow canyons. But otherwise the hike is phenomenal. The view from the top is beautiful and the narrow canyons were stunning.

Gorgeous hike! Beautiful bluffs after you drop into little bear, and get on the river. Definitely a scenic and worth while hike! The pool is big enough to stretch out and enjoy, was tucked perfectly into the hill across the river when you get to a little camp site (look north/NE, on river bed for small trail leading up - the pool is not on the main river!).

Very beautiful trail with lots of interesting geology. Challenging for us amateurs, but not too much. Go early to avoid crowds.

Easy out and back. The foliage is beautiful during the summer months and hiking next to the creek keeps things cool. The cave is pretty fun and not too deep for the kiddos to explore. Parking can get crazy during the weekends. Awesome!

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!

Favorite trail to date.

An amazing, quiet, beautiful hike! Butterflies and birds everywhere. The last part of the trail is pretty rough and steep. Watch out for the caves, they'll sneak up on you. Keep an eye out for a clearing to the west after you cross the creek, the caves are right around there.

So beautiful !

This was a beautiful hike! I’m very out of shape and wanted to get outdoors to jumpstart my fitness journey. I did get really winded going uphill, but took breaks and powered through. I would definitely rate this as a moderate to easy hike for most. If I can do it, ANYONE can.

Be ready to pay 10$ for parking

Amazing hike. A lot of people. But still recommend to see the dam.

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

Overcrowded, people with speakers, bros in white shoes.

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.

Agree with the moderately easy comments in other post. Nice hike though.

Great hike! First half is in the sun, second is mostly in the shade. The dam was a great place for lunch, and it’s all downhill on the way back so it made for an easy trek back after hiking up hill on the way in. Highly recommend.

This was a beautiful trail. Everything was green and blooming. There were a lot of butterflies.
The trail was fairly easy climbing on the way up and downhill back. There was a Dam at the top. It was beautiful and there was a rainbow at the end.

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.

Its much farther then I had thought. Beautiful trail with amazing sight seeing. make sure you leash your dogs at all times. I did receive a ticket for no leash on my very well behaved German Sheppard, but couldn't have been from a better looking, funny, all around Park Ranger, so in the end was kinda worth it lol ENJOY!!

A gorgeous springtime muddy hike. Ankle deep in mud in some places, but the view was worth it!!
