    Sheena Chakeres reviewed Havasu Canyon Trail

    about 2 years ago

    This is an incredible trail, correctly rated as moderate because of the steep descent on the way down. Once you get to the reservation, it's another couple of miles to camping. I don't think it's right to not make a reservation and not pay for camping. These are people who make most of their money off of the tourist seasons and who are generous enough to allow us on their spectacular land. Call WELL in advance for summer reservations, keeping in mind that flooding can happen in August, which is what shapes and changes the canyon and the waterfalls. Ah, the waterfalls. Bring a bathing suit because you'll want to spend every day swimming in the pools.

    Really fun for kids, as there are narrow passages through beautifully carved tuff. If you don't go to the top, it's flat all the way through the canyon. This is a New Mexico must do hike, showing off the diversity of our landscape. Easy drive from Santa Fe or Albuquerque.

    This is a pretty tough trail, almost like stairs up to the top of the ski area, so make sure you're fit and prepared. I went in summer, and the clouds rolled in early, so be cautious of afternoon storms.

    Totally agree with other reviewer; this is a great beginner hike to get used to altitude. It's also a great trail run. You can go two different directions in the back part of the loop, and it's accessible year round with yak traks. Views of sun mountain, the Jemez, then the ski basin. There are two little rest areas with benches for taking a seat and enjoying the scenery.

    This is a really beautiful trail up the valley by Grand Teton. Bears, moose, marmots, and deer. Bring your bear spray! It's really steep at first, but levels out quite nicely, so I would say it's more moderate than difficult. We camped in South Fork, where the views are really amazing.

    Fairly easy trail through emerald forests to a wow lake. Best to do a lot of these trails early in the morning or later in the evening to avoid traffic. Also, make sure to do the boardwalk loop through the gorgeous cedar trees!

    This isn't exactly a trail, more of a boardwalk. LOTS of people; good mountain goat viewing. It's short, so this is good to do with family. Don't bother if the weather is rough. You have to walk over some snow. Try to avoid peak hours as the parking lot is a literal nightmare at midday. We went up early one morning and there was no one.

    This is another well-trafficked trail to a beautiful lake with remnants of its glacier. We saw big horn sheep, and we heard of a number of bears in the early morning. The first little bit is steep, but it levels out quickly. (I did it 7 months pregnant.) this is a must do hike from Many Glacier.

    Spectacular. The views start early and don't stop. Big horn sheep, goats, and hoary marmots frequent the area. You have to go under a waterfall at one point, so be careful with camera equipment and kiddos. Go now before the glacier is gone!

    This is one of my favorite trails in the United States. In July, the wild flowers are gorgeous. It's steep, but the views are pretty spectacular and the hike isn't that long. Be prepared for rain and cooler temperatures. Many people day hike, but we camped for two nights and picked off Fuller Peak the second day.

    This is an easy/moderate trail that has two entry points. You can traverse over from Atalaya for a nice big day of hiking. I really love the 360 views. It's a great trail for snowshoes/yak traks in the winter.

    A lot of bang for your buck! Yes, there are some switchbacks early that are quite steep, but it levels off for a while before climbing again. Gorgeous in the fall.

    First, this is not an easy trail. AllTrails needs to fix this error. Also, if you start at the St. John's lot, it's 7 miles round trip. Beautiful views of the valley, the Jemez mountains, and the Sandias. You gain almost 1800 feet, finishing at a rocky area that sits at about 9,100 feet. There are steep sections, so it's a great workout. This is one of my favorite hikes in the area, and it's great training for anything you want to do elsewhere.
