Pyramid Rock Trail at Red rock state park is a challenging and beautiful hike. There are fantastic views throughout, especially once you get to the top of Pyramid Rock. The geology is amazing. The trail is well marked and there are benches along the way to take a breath and enjoy the views.

There is another hike in Red Rock State Park, but I am not sure how to add a new hike in AllTrails. There is a trail that connects the Pyramid Rock trail to the Churchrock Trail. You can park at either trailhead and hike in either direction. Once you finish the trail + the hike through the parking lot back to the other trailhead, it is a total of 4.75 miles.

Beautiful sandstone hike with amazing views. The trail leads through sandy areas, sandstone with steps carved out, and then you get to the base of Churchrock formation and you hike around the entire formation. Definitely recommend this hike.

Nice hike. You'll meet nice native people along the way. Take a camera.

It was a nice day to take the dogs on a hike.

It was absolutely amazing the hike up. The views of the surrounding area were breathtaking. If you are looking for a hike with a remarkable view, this is one not to miss.

Great trail and I highly recommend if your in Gallup. The first part is very sandy as you walk toward Church Rock. Follow the cairns and pink ribbon to stay on the trail.

Fun, have to follow cairns and steps carved in rocks.

Pyramid Trail is super amazing once you get to the top. It's a perfect little hike and the view is great.
Just bring water! Because it is desert weather all the time!

This is a great trail. Well marked. Challenging enough especially if you are not used to the elevation. The hike to Pyramid Rock and back to parking area is about 4 miles.

Fantastic views wowie plus a great chance to experience a little bit of New Mexicos natural wonder and right off the highway if you're just rolling through New Mexico like we were

Amazing views. I took trail to left past the other rock monolith, down into canyon and back up. I kept wanting the trail to bring me up and back towards the church rock, but it seemed to then go off in the opposite direction. Once you get to a fence and a sign that says 'donated by youth of NM' or something like that. There is also a wooden constructed look out post type thing with a ladder.
