A short, easy trail with some terrific views of the Bosque and the surrounding area. We’ve hiked it twice already and have thoroughly enjoyed it. Highly recommended for those who want to take an easy effortless hike without taking too much time.

First half is ok thru the scrub (thanks for the rock cairns to mark the path 0. The trail really comes into it's own once you start the climb up the mount. Fantastic volcanic formations surround you as you climb-then you are rewarded with expansive views of the area from the peak. Add your name to the little notebook stored in a container by the USGS marker at the summit.

Sandy footing for the first section thru the canyon then some nice climbing up the hills. Potential for lots of wildlife (incl rattlesnakes!) great views from the top of the trail.

Easy mile+ flat loop around the marsh. Often can see deer, bobcat, javalenas and other wildlife. Easy to do all three of the Bosque trails in a day.

Great views… Easy trail for beginners! Lot’s of nice geological features!

Thank goodness for the rock cairns! Beautiful views of the fall colors in the Bosque del Apache and the Magdalenas. Well worth it!

Would be difficult to follow without the excellent cairn work

Soft sand to the split and then the trail was more solid thru the canyon. Beutiful view of the area from the overlook. Fairly deserted at this time of year. Very peaceful!

I had a year pass when I lived near here. Great place to go multiple times as you'll always see something different!
