This trail was an nice easy hike for the morning- very well marked and good shade. We got here a little after 7 and there were about 4 cars in the lot, left about 9 and lot was nearly full. Nice views and variety of plants. May 27 2018

Fun out and back hike. We took the high road from the TH and came back down the creek bed. The higher trail has a few sections where there is a steep drop off; just be aware and you'll be fine.

We walked the loop today in high wind conditions. Did not meet anyone and the weather was good. Easy trail. Not a lot to see but it was still enjoyable. Nice little 2+ mile loop.

Justhikedthis trail with my buddy from Dallas. I flew in from Austin yesterday. We hiked trails 29,30,31 and 32 for a total of 3.2 miles. It was a great day and the trail was well maintained.

Close to Santa Fe, easy to find, plenty of parking. Lots of options and distances with very nice views.

Beautiful views on the high side of the loop. Other side is essentially beneath it where there’s a creek bed.

Great workout and close to home. While listening to an audiobook I quickly scrambled up the hill but was more careful on my way down. Didn’t want to slip on rocks. How lucky we are to have the luxury of an evening hike before dinner.

We did both the east and west circle trail and the falls trail which is a short 0.5 mike trail off of the east circle trail. I felt that the west circle trail, which is the longer and harder of the two, was a lot of work for little reward as far as the views. While there were some cool views of several different mountain ranges and Santa Fe, they were almost all mostly obscured by trees and there were no opportunities to really get a good panoramic view despite how high the trail climbs. If you’re looking for a good workout, it was definitely a challenging hike on the west circle. The falls trail was partially frozen and I’d like to go back, but I would not hike the west circle trail again.

Enjoyed family time on this trail!

I took my in-laws (67 and 70) and they handled it nicely. Very well kept and awesome places for pictures.

Nice hike. Took the “more difficult” trail in and the “easy” path out. Would recommend this route the views from the easy path are great! Quick hike!

Awesome trail.

Good short trail out of town. I wore my 5-months old baby and I hiked with my over 70yo dad. Easy hike. It can be snowy at winter.

a nice hike. not too difficult. some inclines and nice view of ski santafe and Mount Baldy from the top.

Great way to spend a sunny afternoon.

Easy-to-follow and well-maintained network of trails. With clear markers and maps at junctions, you can customize your hike for whatever distance and duration you wish. The walking is pretty mild -- no major ascents or descents. An enjoyable and convenient Santa Fe hiking spot.

Steep climb with sharp drop offs. Not many overlooks, but beautiful trail through the trees. Just great to be in Santa Fe!

Great trail.

Hiked a portion of the Dale Ball trails. Nice rocky trail with good markings and many options to make it longer or shorter.

The hike starts at Borrow trail head. I would agree with others in moderate rating. You do go up and down a couple times. No view at 3.5mi. Pics probably from upper section (entire trail is over 9mi to Ski Santa Fe). Great stroll through the woods. Nice color on Aspens in the fall.

This was a great day for a hike and a great place! Didn't find it too easy, thanks to the different elevations. Great, smooth incline and just when I thought I couldn't go any further it would change to downhill or a flatter area. With the different trail options, you could also choose how far you wanted to go. Loved it!

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.
