Easy trail. Great for beginners. Mostly sandy with nice views of Cat Peaks Mtn at the end. intersects with Ruidoso and Blevins near the end.

Really easy, really hot, and really fun! When I picked up a rock though a cholla baby got stuck in my hand. Painful.

Close enough to take the dogs for a morning walk. Great trail for them. Mostly soft ground but a few cholla barbs along the way. Full sun exposure so prepare accordingly.

A nice and easy trail with wonderful plants and a lot of wildlife. We took our dogs and our senior dog had no problems.
The only advice I can give is that especially this time of the year there are a lot of cholla babies laying on the trail. I am now the proud owner of a cactus spine so deep in my foot it shall remain there forever, and we picked several cholla babies off the leg of our small dog. So be careful and watch your steps.
