Previous reviewer is correct. Turned away at the gate due to "too many kids" being there - direct quote from the lady at the gate. Apparently these national forest trails will be open to the public again on the 12th.

UPDATE - so here's the scoop. Trailhead access to most of the "Glorieta" trails that are listed on alltrails is actually on private property. You will be turned away from them frequently if there are baptist activities taking place, like for instance a summer camp. Figure out how to call ahead if you want to hike these trails from that trailhead just to make sure the trailhead isn't closed to the public.. Most of them are accessible from other locations by taking forest/fire roads or hiking from Santa Fe in to Glorieta. IMO these trails are nice, but not worth that level of hassle. None of them is nearly as nice as the trails in Hyde Park or at the ski basin, but they do start several thousand feet lower if altitude is a concern.
