Easy, well worn, well marked trail. Beautiful, open, sunny desert terrain. Nice views of the Cerrillos mountains and the Santa Fe mountains. I encountered about a 50/50 mix of mountain bikers and hikers. Saw a cute lizard, a couple cute flowers. Overall quite nice.

We had a great time! Ice wasn't too bad & the snow wasn't too deep. We did about 4 miles total. Some dogs were off-leash & off-trail, not sure if there's a leash rule but there should be. We really appreciated the signage and the pristine condition of the landscape.

Great little trails. Make your own little trail each time. All trails run together. A good place to run and jog. Several trails will give you a good workout. Hiked with Mark, Chad, and Dave.

Not muddy at all today, and it was beautiful. We did about a 4-mile loop, but there are numerous connectors that make this an ideal mountain biking or trail running system. Dogs are allowed off leash if they are under voice control. Views in every direction. The Cowboy Shack Trail was pretty full, but we passed few parties. I imagine this gets hot in the midday summer sun.

Dog-friendly Trail. It is great for trail running. After rains it is very sloppy and muddy. I go early in the morning, so I can’t say what the traffic is later in the day, but very few people are on the trail between 6:00 and 8:00.
