Had a great time, and the dogs loved it too! Easy to follow, bring water and lunch to have a picnic in the aspens at the top!

Rode horse back to the Crest trail. Beautiful vistas, very difficult in places, I got off the horse at one point and walked as it got real rough! Not for the novice rider!

This is a very nice trail. It's a pretty steep climb with great views of the Estancia basin. You will pass an area with large rock faces. After 2 miles you will start seeing lots of large aspen groves. Makes for a beautiful fall hike. This trails ends at the crest and a nice view of the back side of the Manzano's. There is not a peak near by.
