First part rocky maybe moderate not well marked. The top was a flat circle with nice views.

Tewa/Towa territory This trail begins right in the middle of a fancy resort — wasn’t expecting that. A little muddy in parts but mostly clear.

The walk is nice and beautiful. The marketing is misleading and false.

a moderately difficult hike in the beginning but once you reach the top it's relatively flat and there are a few spectacular views. also several other trails nearby worth walking. dog friendly on a leash. some beautiful high desert plants to be viewed.

Very nice hike. The quick up gets your blood pumping then the relatively flat lets you enjoy the views and ruins

Beautiful views from the Pueblo site. Pottery shards throughout the site.

Trial itself is nothing to write home about but the site is very interesting with pottery artifacts all over. You need a lot of imagination because there are no ruins.
