Great trail. Lots of options for distance. Great for dogs with a dog park next to the trail head.

Beautiful trail. Still had some snow on the ground when we went but snowshoes were not necessary. Muddy in some spots at the beginning, but once you get to the rocky portion it was mostly dry. Loved the views!

I use this trail as my daily exercise. It is now overcrowded. People are parking carelessly with big gaps between each car so that one day the parking lot was completely full. There are many off-leash dogs. A friend was bitten recently by an off-leash dog. Visitors please be considerate!

Great trail. It had just snowed, but the trail was clearly visible. We used some spikes for our shoes, but they weren’t necessary if you have good shoes.

great, easy, meandering hike with views of Mt. Baldy, Santa Fe and Los Alamos. good mixture of sun and shade. icy in spots on the north side and some mud due to melting snow. very few people out today (Saturday).

Great short hike two days ago. Hike before the bad weather rolled in. Great trail. You can pick different routes. Choose your distance. Hiked with Chad and Dave. MIA•Mark

This is a great, easy hike when you just want to get out of the house for a couple of hours (or less) on a weekend. The trail is well maintained, you can choose different routes depending on how much time you have and it is very dog friendly. I will warn that there are quite a few cacti near the path, so watch your dog as you go by, but it's nothing to be overly worried about.

well marked trails, in great condition. The trails were marked better than any hiking I have done in Arizona, California or Missouri.

Great trail system. Hiked part of this on September 28th. A few people, but was alone most of the time. Clear signage.

I am amazed at the beautiful hiking available so close to historic Santa Fe. We hiked about 2 miles, but there are numerous options and all are extremely well marked. This trail allows awesome views of Santa Fe and homes in the area. Better to hike early or in the evening to avoid the heat. We had a great breeze and a bright blue sky.

A nice trail with the kids-took the shorter loop. A little over 2 miles round trip. Shaded in the morning but gets hot as day goes on
