Nice trail. Too bad that they fenced off all close access to the art. Protection is of course needed,, but part of the fun hiking there in the past was finding a hidden and unexpected treasure

Took my dog for a walk here today. Dog waste pickup bags are at the start of the trail. There were several filled poop bags left by people on the trail. C'mon people! Dispose of the waste you pick up rather than leaving the bag on the trail! No wonder dogs aren't welcome places!

The trail is marked with arrows. Easy footing but it is sandy. Saw several rabbits. Petroglyphs are visible and really stand out when the sun is right. It was an enjoyable, easy walk.

Flat and sandy, bring binoculars to see the petroglyphs that are far away.

Easy to access, steep, scenic and counter clockwise is definitely better. Fun hike nice mix of single track, switchbacks and light bouldering

Neat trail at a neat National Monument. Lots of petroglyphs to look at. Easy walk in sand and no shade.

A multitude of trails makes reliance on gps a good idea out and back. I’ve gone clockwise, and counter clockwise, and the latter is a bit steeper. Can be windy at the top. And wonderful views!

Great easy trail with lots of petroglyphs. Took my dog with me, and she enjoyed it. Make sure to take water. Unfortunately, there is a lot of vandalism and fake petroglyphs. Some are obvious, but some are harder to tell if they are fake or real. I played it safe by only taking pictures of ones I knew were real because they were in the brochure!

The best part of this hike was seeing a tarantula crossing the path. The petroglyphs we're interesting, but I didn't realize they were all drawn sporadically on boulders.

Gorgeous views and well marked trail. Easy for my 6 and 8 year olds to hike.

Nice Trail. Flat trails. Liked the petroglyphs. Saw a chipmunk.

Easy trail took 40 mins had to pay close attention just to notice petroglyphs

Pretty easy trail some wildlife

Quite fun!

Awesome hike. Not too hard. Beautiful views.

The parking lot was well kept, no pay station. Trail head was well marked along with the trail. This mornings weather was cast over which was very beneficial cause the Petroglyphs were easy to spot. Can't wait to return to run this trail.

Nice walk through a canyon full of history. Easy stroll appropriate for all ages.

Beautiful oasis between rows of houses Be careful not to touch or climb onto the petroglyphs. They are everywhere.

We walked to the cabin from the tram. Really nice hike. Pretty & pretty easy:)

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 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.

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

Very easy, well marked, heavily trafficked, touristy road stop stroll i would say.

Not wheelchair nor stroller friendly. It is a desert hike without shade. Be prepared with water and good shoes. Petroglyphs are located in the back of the canyon so you should hike the entire 2.2 mile loop.

Easy hike, took me about 35 minutes. Petroglyphs are a little tough to see, but if you look up amongst the rocks, especially next to any of the markers, you'll see some cool ones. there is zero shade on this hike, so plan accordingly!

It was interesting, quite sandy, I ended up with a lot of sand in my shoes, my dog made it half way, I ended up carrying my 35 pound dog back to the car. (no dog left behind

Great look at the Petroglyphs and a beautiful view of Albuquerque if you climb up a bit off the main trail. Nice, easy hike with jackrabbits, hummingbirds and lots of wild flowers.

Lots of petroglyphs. Jackrabbits were frequently spotted. Because the trail isn't marked, it's unclear how close to the rocks you should get, but you could get right up to them (but shouldn't). This is evidently a favorite dog walking area.

Steep climb but great vistas!

Favorite of the petroglyph
