Nice trail with a range of experiences. Starts out fairly level and then adds some altitude, perfect warm up and cool down.

Beautiful hike/trail run. Can be a little steep and rocky and times, but overall great! We may have gone a slightly longer route, my GPS said it was over 7.5 miles round trip.

One of my favorite trails to follow. And it can connect to many other trails as well. It took me about 3.25 hours to complete.

Last mile is very strenuous, but well worth the climb. Amazing views of Santa Fe and neighboring mountain ranges.

Great hike in late evening with sunset views over Santa Fe. Bring sunscreen on sunny days--lower 1/2 of trail doesn't have much cover/shade.
