I’ve hiked this trail around 3-4 times so far. I haven’t done the whole trial each time but from what I have done it is pretty easy. The parking lot is somewhat big which is always nice but you do have to pay around $5 to park there. Super beautiful trail and for the most part it is easy to navigate. I definitely would recommend this trial to people who have been hiking forever but also to beginners as well.

The portion of the Brins Mesa Trail after the junction with the Soldiers Pass Trail is not very interesting or scenic. But the loop of Brins Mesa, Soldiers Pass, Jordan, and Cibola Pass Trails is very nice with great views. Perfect weather in mid-September.

Outstanding views throughout the hike. As you gain in elevation, the views become even more breathtaking. If you find yourself tiring and wondering if the view from atop Brins Mess is worth the effort, push on because it certainly is.
