Great views, not all that hard of a hike if you're in decent shape. 1.5 hours up and back. Trail leaves from Ghost Ranch.

Spectacular 360 views of the canyon, mesas and chimney rock. Nice steady climb. Make it a full day at Ghost canyon. Many other wonderful adjacent hikes; particularly Kitchen Mesa and beautiful matrimonial trails.

While several of the inclines are very rocky it was a moderately challenging hike with fantastic vistas

Easy hike, 2.0 mile round trip. Beautiful rock formations and the view Georgia O'Keefe's home in the red rock canyon is a definite plus. We did the hike in 50 minutes due to rain/snow coming in.
