A beautiful trail with views of Raton and the surrounding area. This trail extends along the KT Boundary which offers some unique geology.

When we first drove in it didn’t seem like we should even be there but once we reached the trailhead I felt a lot better about the run. Take both the east and west loops for the full 3 miles. Views were amazing and it was very quiet and secluded. Did NOT see any mountain lions (thankfully). Overall a pretty fun trail.
