5/22/17 Entire trail is in excellent shape with the exception of two downed trees about a mile upstream from the Corral Draw trailhead. Lots of water from side creeks still running off. I'm not a fast hiker and did it southbound in 10.5 hours hiking plus an overnight about 2/3 of the way. Love this hike early in the season.

Beautiful easy walk along the creek. Be sure and take your bug spray!! There were spots for mosquitos- but not the entire trail

Beautiful walk along Hermosa Creek. We went about 5 miles out and came back. Walk was very easy and scenery was outstanding. Saw a couple of mountain bikers and some fishermen but otherwise not crowded. Easy access from Hermosa Park Road.

Beautiful hike!! One of my new favs here in the San Juan's now!! Absolutely loved the hike, not strenuous at all, follows the creek which is lovely. Can't wait to complete the whole thing in the future!!

Pretty and not very strenuous, but there were to many motorbikes to be a really enjoyable hike

Gorgeous views! This trail is great in that you can make your hike as long or short as you want. Seen others along on atvs, fishing, mountain bikes and horseback riders. I've only been in the summer, bet it's stunning in the fall.
