You begin the hike in the first parking lot where you pick up the ATV Bypass Trail. Follow that until you come to a fork bearing right onto the trail which is marked "No Motorized Traffic". It's a single track that runs parallel to the highway. The trail is predominately flat until you cross under the road & pick up Tunnel Canyon Trail. As you walk parallel to the highway, there is road noise and depending on traffic, it can be annoying. It wasn't bad today. The rest of the hike is on Tunnel Canyon Trail until you descend down into Otero Canyon. There are some rocky areas but nothing bad. There are also some south facing exposures with little in the way of shade. Easy peasy...
