This was an extremely beautiful hike! The terrain is a little crazy in parts, there are sections of dirt, rocks, woods, and grass & the dirt/rocks can cause an easy slip. I’d bring ankle covering boots and lots of water! The trees & bushes can get a little scratchy, so I wore leggings. I’d be sure to have a map up on your phone because some turns get confusing. Our 5 year old German Sheppard did great on this hike as well, besides slipping in the rocky sections. Overall, a great hike, I would just come prepared!

We truly enjoyed our Sunday morning hike. The sound of the running water, the sweet smell of the beautiful flowers, the fresh morning air was just mind renewing. I would highly recommend the trail if you are up for a little challenge. It’s absolutely beautiful at this time, check out some of the pictures.

This is a perfect trail for anyone one of the nicest trails of heights in the southwest mainly due to the water nice to see the brown trout and Brooke

We did this trail with 3 kids (5, 6, 7) and 2 dogs (all avid hikers so they can hang on the distance and altitude). Lots of fun. Plenty of shade and trees on the way up and down. The peak had amazing 360 degree views for great pictures.

Did this 5/20 weekend. Pretty but not super spectacular in my opinion. A nice loop trail and there’s plenty of areas where you can refill water if you bring a filter since the trail is parallel to a stream almost the whole time (except on the ridge)

Did this hike 5/20 weekend. Trail is a little overgrown towards the end but not too bad. Really steep. We didn’t make it to the top because it was definitely a scramble but we made it most of the way. No one was there, really pretty views even if you don’t reach the real top (there’s a false summit)

Took Big Bonito up to Crest and then went down Little Bonito. This is a difficult yet not impossible trail. We had a 10 yr old and 2 dogs in our group. Everyone was amazed by the view when we made it to the top. Water is available for filtering on the majority of big Bonito and Little Bonito, however it drys up about .5 miles or so to the top. No water on Crest trail. Not much shade on Crest trail either.

The views were breathtaking! 360 view from the top. There were a couple of rocky areas and I had to sit and get over my fear of heights toward the top, but I was so happy I kept going and made it to the peak. It was worth it! Our 11 and 13 year olds went with us and did great too!

This trail should start farther down than it shows here. The Forest Service Road is closed and locked up halfway up the road. There is an individual lock for each of the cabins past that point. Therefore the gate will never be open! It’s a 3/4 mile walk just to get to the trail head. After you get going on the actual trail, when you get to the next marker, you don’t see the arrows very well. You have to go LEFT! we went right (No. 77) and wasted time. Once we backtracked to the proper trail it was overgrown. The trail didn’t seem to be well traveled or maintained. The views of the ridge line are pretty good though.

Beautiful trail from start to finish. Fairly easy hike. Great views!

Beautiful Trail! One of my favorites in the area. Well marked, plenty of flowing water, rewarding views. Easy but challenging elevation changes and plenty of wildlife. Overall just a fantastic hike!

Great hike. Snow run off at perfect level for crossing streams. Little too populated for a single track trail, but completely worth it.

Great trail. We did it in reverse and liked that route. Tons of wild irises in bloom. My Apple Watch marked it at 7.5 miles. Trailhead and campground were very busy for the holiday weekend but we only saw a few groups of nice hikers on the trail.

A great trail a little hard for someone who hadn’t hiked in a long time. Turkey canyon to crest trail is very steep, I was out of breath the whole time and had previously injured my foot so i had to take a frequent breaks. From the crest trail to clear water very high grass, very narrow trail and flat. Argentina trail is all down hill muddy and wet from the creek. Views are totally worth the steep hike up

This is one of my favorite trails in the area! The trail is well marked and not too difficult. The dogs loved this trail as well.

Would recommend wearing log pants and it’s a little over grown. Multiple fallen trees that you need to climb over. We lost track of the trail and ended early. Also have to walk about a mile to the trailhead.

Beautiful trail with the creek running by your side or sometimes crossing your trail. The terrain inclines around the peak and depending on the time of day, you may not get a lot of shade so make sure you pace yourself and bring enough water. The trail is not hard, but make sure you are sufficiently prepared. The peak and Crest trail are beautiful and you get a view of the entire area of Carrizozo, the Cibola National forest in the distance, and the Valley of Fire. If you venture off the Aregntina trail and Crest trail crossing northwest to a nearby cliff, you will be able to see White Sands. The path is clear and is not confusing.

Follows the river most of the way up and most of the way down. Great scenery the whole way. One of the best ones I've been on. My 10 year old did it with me and was fine.

Went once in February. Snow was 16-24" deep on parts of the trail. If going before April/May I would suggest checking the snow depth on NOAA. Did it with my 10 yr old son in April. Short hike, pretty steep and intense. Absolutely beautiful. One of my favorites.
