I have done this hike numerous times and it’s a nice, easy hike. It has nice views. Parking can be a pain at the trailhead but you can park in the St John’s lot and walk up to the trailhead. It would be a great hike if you’re visiting and not used to the Santa Fe elevation. It is also right in town so easily accessible.

Great short little walk with some amazing views of Santa Fe! Definitely the most scenic of the Dale Ball Trails.

Easy hike to get acclimated to the altitude. Has good panoramic views of Santa Fe. We went towards the end of the day. Parking is very limited!!

I'm new to hiking, and I found the extensive uphill portions of this hike to be challenging.

Nice trail and good views of Santa Fe. A good starter trail around the St. John's neighborhood.

Beautiful views, great weather. Parking kind of limited and construction at trail head made it worse. Still I'd do it again and extend out by connecting with Dall Ball.

If this trail were not in the backyards of hill dwellers it would be worthy of another star, though I admit that the walls enclosing their lives do seem more distant than where errected. The geology is colorful and the ecology prestine despite decade of frugal clouds. On it's forest bench I will most definitely sit again for it is close to civilization, if one can still claim us as civilized...

Nice easy hike. Very cool loose metamorphic rocks, so the trail sparkles in places. We saw lots of nice views and wildflowers. Very close to town, which is both a pro and a con. Trail is very clean and well maintained.

Totally agree with other reviewer; this is a great beginner hike to get used to altitude. It's also a great trail run. You can go two different directions in the back part of the loop, and it's accessible year round with yak traks. Views of sun mountain, the Jemez, then the ski basin. There are two little rest areas with benches for taking a seat and enjoying the scenery.

This is an easy trail with great views. You can see past Sandia which is 50 miles away. This is a great first hike for those not used to 7000 foot elevations.
