Absolutely beautiful loop. Dense trees, many birds and wildflowers. The pond at the halfway point is nice. Some inclines, mild-moderate overall. Great views of the San Francisco Peaks and the surrounding area. Many mountain bikers on the trail. I recommend knowing where you are going beforehand because this loop intersects with many other trails and we ran into a number of people who were lost and didn't know which trail they were on.

Great trail! Just beautiful all the way through. Squirrels, skunks, & a deer today. Not very many people (probably cause it was the day after a holiday).

I would definitely take a power bank with me for my phone next time. The lack of service & running the app to record my trip sucked my phone dead 1/2 way through!
