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.

Hiked this today. So beautiful. The creek meanders next to you most of the hike. Definitely recommend.

No snow at all. What an amazing trail. River was flowing and it was an amazing sight. The route was filled with sufficient climbs and descents. Will definitely do it again

Simple loop trail with lots of nature. The trail crosses over a creek a couple times and it's very beautiful especially with all the melt water. There was lots of snow on the trail when I went but it was still easy to navigate and the trail is well marked with signs. I would definitely do this hike again.

We started out that April morning for the tesugue north fork trail but it was too cold and snowy. Our option two turned out to be the perfect hike of our trip to Santa Fe. More cover than the Atalaya trail and less snow than the nambe lake trail, this route cruises through easy switchbacks onto whimsical creek basins. The trail was superbly maintained.

Great trail for a shallow lunged Easterner like me! Here on "off season" don't know why it's ever off - this is a gorgeous time of year. The trail had spring runoff & patches of snow/ice which were dissipating faster than the glaciers. Spring bloom & butterflies abound. Passed by other friendly hikers & bikers. End result, FANTABULOUS SW Experience!

Snowshoed for the first time here. Definitely a pretty trail, but narrow at parts and a lot of uphill/switchbacks during the second half. Challenging in snowshoes this time of year but worth it. Decent snowpack on most of trail but there were parts where the snowshoes came in very handy. Recommended for anyone who's up for a good winter workout.
