Beautiful and easy to follow trail with several views of the mountains and city of Taos. The estimated time of just over 3 hours is accurate - we took our dog and stopped for views and photos in that time. Locals on the trial recommended we go clockwise at the loop next time. Apparently the trip to the top is easier/more gradual that way. We started around 10am and jackets were off in 20 min. It is pretty warm this time of year with the occasional (and much welcomed) cool breeze.

Great trail for a high intensity interval workout. Not much for views, but enjoyable.

Nice moderate peak loop with some rocky and wooded terrain. Decent views of Taos and the mountains to the North.

Made this 9.5 miles extending to north boundary. Started counter clockwise. Great easy moderate trek and dry conditions.

No snow on trails. Great casual loop.

Forgot to record the whole hike. But halfway through you can pick up 495, a nice single track trail, to extend the hike. Backside of 108 had about 200 feet total of slushy snow. All trails doesn’t show 495 on the map, so may be worth taking a screenshot of another map before you head out. AT&T service spotty on 495.

A few icy patches on the back side of the mountain, so a bit slippery in my trail shoes.

This trail is all of moderate maybe even hard because the trial is a steady incline

Great trail! A bit icy on the back side so we ended up descending the same side we ascended, but it’s a nice little hike, close to town too.

Great hike! Little muddy at first, but don’t worry it all comes off in the snow on the second half of the loop.

Done on August 7, 2019 with my wife. Beautiful trail and easy to follow. No effects of high elevation, even for two people from Texas. Tons of tiny cactuses and short trees (Juniper maybe). There are some great views along the way, but none really at the top, so get your pictures along the way. Also, the “right” portion of the trail is by far the sunniest part.

Randonnée très sympa, assez physique avec la récompense d'arriver au sommet du pic. Sentier sec qui emprunte des passages boisés, sableux, rocheux, et surtout une très belle vue de Taos et du plateau. Nous avons un très beau spectacle entre les nuages de pluie, le soleil et le paysage au loin ... magnifique A faire absolument si vous restez près de Taos !

Nice little trail skirting the town...it was about what I expected. Warmer and more humid than anticipated for getting going at 8:30 in the morning. I didn't find it too rocky for a high desert trail. Some wildflowers were still blooming at higher elevations, and there were a ton of whiptails. I passed three groups of people, but only on the way down (I took the trail clockwise). Great starter trail for my first visit to Taos!

Was a pretty good trail. Ended up spontaneously taking the loop, which is a 4 star trail. This trail gave nice views of Taos. This side of the mountain is definitely hotter and has less diverse vegetation. It’s still a really nice hike, reminiscent of Arizona at the beginning and more dense at the end. Loved the north face of the mountain on this trail especially at 8000 ft and above because of the variety of wildflowers trees and mosses

Hot! Rocky! Walk on the rocks for a free foot massage! Best to hike as early in the morning as possible. Documented my hike with friends and uploaded to YouTube. Enjoy! https://youtu.be/BPPyjpGuFyI

Pretty hike but an exposed trail and the sun was intense. No views at the peak but nice views along the way. Moving time was about 1hr 50 mins not including a few quick breaks.

Hiked this trail with my wife Monday. We parked at the trailhead without any problems. The trail is a little rocky in places so be prepared for some creative stepping. We encountered some windy conditions, sun, and shady areas on different parts of the trail. My wife wore a tank top and got way to much sun on her shoulders. Definitely recommend bringing sunscreen on this hike. We both wore shorts and trail runners and were fine. I would agree that this trail is moderate. We both rated it at 4 stars because although the views at times are good, they’re not great. It’s a great workout and we’re both glad we did this hike. No regrets, but will probably head to another trail if back in Taos.

It's a fun, not terribly challenging hike, but more than a stroll. Best enjoyed early in the morning. There are some good views of Taos and mountains to the NE.
