Great trail. Lots of different trails merge off of this one so you need to keep an eye on the map.

Easy to moderate trail and it’d be great for trail running. Temp was low 50’s, sunny no wind and wound up shedding windbreaker. Great views of WNMU campus and if you go down the backside nice views of farming and ranching homes. We maintained an easy pace and took an hour and was about 2 miles. Nice hike to bring along your best friend too! Enjoy!

I don’t know why the description says it is near Pinos Altos. It is actually within the city limits of Silver City. Trailheads are off city streets. This is a lovely trail system with fabulous views. You can do a thirty minute hike or a two hour hike depending on how you loop it. Lots of mining remnants to puzzle over. You won’t get lost because it is completely surrounded by streets and roads - just get high and you can figure out where you are. This is not a great place to hike in the heat of summer because there is minimal shade but otherwise anytime will do. Have a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen and water. Highly recommend!
