This was my first time hiking near Santa Fe and I greatly enjoyed this trail. The trail was marked along the way which was nice because there were several smaller trails that linked to the main one. Once you got higher, it was marked easy route or steep route. So I liked knowing that there were two options. It took my friends and I about two hours to reach the top from the parking lot, which seemed about average. Great views and nice trail. Highly recommend.

Solid trail. Ended up doing the loop via Dale Ball trail so I would estimate the total distance was a little over 7 miles. Good views of Santa Fe.
