Front side of the trail has the best views, back side going down is more secluded then ends going through a neighborhood tract

Fun short trail ideal for kids, supervised of course due to rattle snakes and holes on the trail. The trail starts on the east side (right side) of the museum building. The first mile is a dirt trail that passes various historical and operational oil derrick pumps, and the second mile is a paved access road and regular sidewalks. It’s nicer to turn around half way (at the Olinda Trail sign) than to take the loop.

There are 15 markers on the trail that reference information in the trail guide, sometimes available in the white boxes at the trail head (parking lot) or at marker 15 (where the Olinda Trail meets Santa Fe sidewalk at Carbon Canyon Road).

Museum parking is free, with posted trail hours daily 9 AM to 4 PM.

Our first hike here. Beautiful views from the top Good uphill climb right away from the museum side, but if you start the route going the other direction, it’s downhill until the trial flattens out for a bit before you start climbing again.

Make sure to check out the Museum if it’s open. Lots of history in the area.
