Very nice trail. Some folks pay no attention to the signs and don't pick up after their dogs and we have run into horseback riders who pay no attention to the signs. The parking area is nice and the trail is well laid out. All in all a nice experience.

Good workout, but I kind of lost the trail once using the app. I was on a large trail but all trails said I was in the middle of a loop.

The trail is mostly complete but there are some areas of the AllTrails map are not accurate. Also, be very careful to watch for snakes.

Great trail with fantastic views. It does get hot, mornings are perfect though. I have seen rattlesnakes on the trail so be careful.

The trails are a bit too much soft sand. I felt like I was sloggy along a sandy beach. I prefer a hardpack trail ... However, the NM desert scenery was beautiful. December is a good time of year to hike these trails.
