This was a nice easy trail view at the end was great. We did have to make our way around a small lake from water run off and got caught in a rain/hail storm on our way out.

Very nice trail to hike. Took mountain bikes to ride but had to hike with them part of the way. Came across a herd of mountain gots which made the rockiness worth it. View at end of trail is amazing.

This is a nice trail that shows you the lower portion of the rio grande del Norte. Bonus to my hike is that I came a cross a big horn sheep grazing about 10 yards off of the trail. He watched me with caution but didn't run off.

Beautiful, relatively flat hike. It's the desert and totally exposed, so keep that in mind. We started around 11am and it was HOT. It's mostly unimpressive scrub until the very end, where you get an incredible view of the Rio Grande from thousands of feet above.

This trail offers a breathtaking view all the way from its beginning to the end. It is not a loop, so you have to retrace your steps back to the parking lot. Caution should be exercised while hiking due to very strong winds. Otherwise, it's a great easy hike with the gorgeous landscape.

Overall this is a beautiful, quick hike. The views of the black lava rocks and Rio Grand were spectacular. This is a very flat hike. Our biggest complaint is the mud. It's worth doing once, especially if you aren't used to the altitude.
