Nice hike and view of White Sands. Mostly shaded, in the trees, and nice breeze. Trail marker signs don't match the trail names they list on the board at the trailhead. They do have alphanumeric markers that help keep you on track. Recommend grabbing a map to help you navigate or you may end up on a longer hike than you planned. There are quite a few trails here that interconnect.

The trail is in good care and at the weekends is a little traffic. There are some waterspots in the spring and autumn. Good for hiking with kids or dogs. Otherwise are there some pokestops for the kids and many pokemons on trail.

Awesome trail. I would put in between easy and moderate if you're not used to the altitude though. Despite what the sign says, go walk out on the tressle. Its awesome. Great Trail.
