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.
Simple and short trail, challenging in parts but mostly easy. Better marked than most. Pretty sights along the way.
Beautiful hike specially with the leaves changing colors..well maintained and quite a few other hikers and Mt. bikers on the trail.
Between the Borrego and the Bear I cannot say is an easy choice but since this trail travels both one need not devour the other. Great trail, very well planned in a relatively small triangle. Enjoyed it immensely.
A Little slippery at times but expected for a down hill up hill hike. Great tall trees so it's a good summer hike. Good for dogs too.
We did the entire loop w a 4 year old and a 7 year old. A little tough for them but they made it :)
Perfect trail for workout and views. Nice shaded trail
This is a nice loop trail, well-shaded, easy with some climbing. You don't get views like with other hikes, but it's a good way to start trail running. Good for kids and dogs.
