Nice hike down to the ruins. Beautiful views of the red rocks and cliffs along the way. If you're from a region that's at sea level (like me), the ascent might be challenging on a hot day (think I had a touch of altitude sickness with exertion) but I recovered quickly and well. Would definitely recommend as it is cool to get up to the actual ruins. Bring lots of water! You're exposed most of the time but there are quite a few shady areas for rest.

accomplished this trail on Sunday and very much enjoyed it. although it's rated easy, it's 1.5 mile back up! all incline! I'm not in shape, but I would do this walk again in a heartbeat

beautiful and easy! the only trail that opens to public in the NM but def worth it. nice red rock canyon, some of the part looks like the WAVE formation, and high giant canyon wall at the end. A lot of birds!

This trail is more for the tourist/novice hiker. However, it is a very nice trail. Well maintained. Going down is the easy part. Good workout going back up.

Took my 5 year old son and 2 year old daughter here and did this hike. Very Cool area you feel as if you went back in time 1000 years and you just have so many questions.
