Perfect hike for my dog and I! Super easy and flat, great to run sprints or meander along - my dog loves to swim so getting to the river was big fun! This would be a great hike to take visiting friends who aren’t big hikers or used to the elevation - I don’t mind the drive in at all, drive fast and it’s a lot of fun!

Nice hike. Water was warm not hot. The little fish nibbling at your feet are the best. Easy to find.

This spot has some stunning view during the Fall seasons. We went there around mid October.

I love the contrast between the yellowish, orangey, and reddish fallen leaves and the existing green pine trees.

Thanks to the running creek, there’s some spots you can see little fields of grass that’s rare in a desert like Santa Fe.

We didn’t finish the trail because it was getting a little late. We’ll be back very soon.

A sign at the trailhead says the trail is closed; I hiked it anyway as it is a 30 minute drive from the highway. Nice and easy hike.

This was a great trail. I took my 10 year old and packed a lunch. It took us about 5.5 hours because we had several rest breaks, but we made it! My Garmin watch tracked about 6.5 miles. I loved the variety of scenery in the first mile, before we started the climb up. We took the "steep path" and it was fine, no scrambles.

Nice views for an easy hike. Kept within view of the highway, which was a bummer. The rock and plant diversity was very fascinating for native Kansas though!
