Beautiful scenery, a quiet natural setting, and easy access make Hyde Memorial State Park a favorite picnic area, campground, respite, and base camp for excursion to the surrounding Santa Fe National Forest.

after a weeks worth of rain, was hiking up a rillet and able to use the pinecone dams for dry footing. forest department volunteers were working on the trail to repair rain damage. there was a lone western scarlet gilia in the meadow. beautiful trail on a wet day.

Beautiful hike. TAKE A PICTURE OF TRAIL MAP. We took a wrong turn and ended up on Bishops lodge. Had to Uber back to our car 5 mi away, which doesn't sound bad, however it sounds horrible when you've already walked 7.5mi that day.

very steep, most of trail very close to sharp drop...the alternative, supposedly more difficult route, is much nicer with a more gradual incline. both paths go to the same location

Gorgeous views, went labor day weekend and did not encounter too many people. Only one dog was on a leash. Stop often to rest and listen to the trees sing in the wind. At the top of the ridge before coming back on the loop, there are other trails to explore. Had lunch at the top. It was nice ending with the meadow; it was all easy down hill to wildflowers, bees, and young aspens.
