Great time on this trail during our extended Fall weather. Thanks for the free apples! Nice watering hole for dogs.

The trail is great. The map from all trails put us at the parking area. The trailhead is about 200 yards up the road. There is a trail map at the parking area showing all the different trails that are accessible from this particular starting point. The trail head is a little bit tricky. Follow the road up and keep an eye on the right side of the road. The trail head is poorly marked. It dissects two pieces of private property. If you arrive at driveways marked 53 & 54 you went too far. Have fun. After you are on the trail it's a breeze. Every trail from there is marked well and established.

I did sunrise hike here one morning when staying in Santa Fe. The views are terrific and there are multiple trail options near Bishop's lodge. There is quite a lot of open space around here, but new housing developments are beginning to fill in the landscape.
