Windy hot day, and ran in between shade stops. The end is a great view and worth it!

Good for kids and old folks. Really beautiful
views of Sangre de Christos and Redondo Peak.
Trail ends at a canyon edge which is nice but not as
spectacular as the Frijoles Canyon which is much larger. But still a really nice hike!

I can only imagine how nice a walk this would be in the early summer when the wildflowers are in bloom. It is a very easy hike with wonderful vistas in all directions. Lots of signs of animals but we didn't see any.
