I went on a Thursday morning . I had the place to myself. The trails were marked moderate and were that. They were well marked . Scenery was great especially all the different mine shafts. I had a wonderful few hours.

Awesome trail with awesome views and openings to old mines. Bring plenty of water and some cash to pay the parking fee.

Visitors center in Cerrillos is nice and has lots of good information. Trails were in great condition. Not a piece of trash anywhere that I saw (this is pretty miraculous around here!). Great veiws. Interesting history of mining in the area over hundreds and perhaps around a thousand years or so! Family friendly trails, but go during cooler times/months as this trail offers next to no cover. It's sunny and hot.

Trails were well maintained and the views can be breathtaking at some points. The trail is broken up in to four parts, so beginner to pro on an off day, would enjoy. Check in at the state park visitors center for restrooms, historical aspects, maps. The terrain looks similar and can get you in a loop if your not careful. I enjoyed it.

This is an easily accessible trail from the highway that offers rolling hills and great views of the surrounding countryside and mountains. As a bonus there are a few historical markers describing the mining activity in the surroundings hills that are interesting. Because of horse usage and a dry creek bed parts of the trail are damaged and of sandy making the trail more challenging for the hiker/runner.
