Beautiful trail along the stream most of the way, with at least 6 waterfalls. Wouldn’t be difficult for older kids. Will definitely hike it again.

This trail was so impossible to follow. I assume that's the reason for the "difficult" rating, because the slope is very mild, as you can see from the topo. I only made it a bit over a mile up before losing the trail completely and finding no workaround. Disappointed because it sounded great.

Great trail. Most of the waterfalls were frozen over, but great views and a good workout! Spent around 3 hours on this trail.

Great hike with several waterfalls and grand vistas at the top. One of my favorite day hikes in New Mexico.
