The trail was horribly marked and very deceiving. It was supposed to be a 4 mile loop, but that was not the case as we got lost twice and ended up hiking about 12 miles. Be careful with the trailhead markings!

Nice forest hike in the snow.

I like this trail; however, the last couple times, I was interrupted en route by a herd of cattle blocking the trail! No way around them, so I had to turn around & go back.

Nice leisurely walk through the forest and along a river. Pleasurable despite being a down and back up hike, it’s an easy grade all the way. It’s well shaded and a very good path that is very popular, especially with dogs often off leash. It’s rated moderate, but is on the easy side of the category. It’s worth lingering along the river.

Great hike. A little challenging at the end if you are not acclimated. It is definitely a strong moderate trail.

Nice hike through beautiful pine and aspen forest. Cool and shady, could be done any time of day. There were a lot of people on the trail, but not so many that we didn't get periods of solitude. Gorgeous country. The Windsor trail section along tesuque creek was great. Mostly easy with a couple of moderate stretches. Some long uphill sections so do be adjusted to the altitude..,

This trail is another favorite. We are starting to branch out after getting the Santa Fe day hiking book, but this trail we do often. It is a little more strenuous, you get a good workout in. Smaller parking lot, but you can park along the road.
The hike has shade and you can go along the Windsor trail if you want to extend your hike.
This trail is about a 2 hour hike for the fast hikers, a little longer is you stop and linger and take in the beauty!

Perfect first hike on visit to Santa Fe. Shaded, forest air.

We hiked from left to right and missed the turn from Trail 254 onto 150. We added about 2 miles to the the 4 mile trail. The trails and scenery are lovely. Thank goodness for the creek. It makes for a restful, refreshing stop.

Well shaded to escape the sun. Wouldn't say it's somewhere between easy and moderate.

Did this trail last week and loved it! There are mountain bikers out there but all respectful of hikers.

Pretty trail, not difficult if the elevation doesn't bother you. Would have been easier if I had bothered to look at the profile....

Beautiful forested hike/run loop to Tesuque Creek. Clearly marked, lots of people on a Sunday (to be expected).

nice trail, well kept. map at trailhead was very helpful as one particular intersection (where windsor and barrego trails) was a little confusing.

it was approximately 4.9 miles per my smartphone pedometer. not too heavily traveled this Sunday morning.
