I walked up the Piedra Lisa Trail to the Rincon Spur Trailhead. I was only able to go maybe 500 ft up that trail and it disappeared. It’s about 2.5 miles to the Rincon Spur Trailhead. I started at about 6:30 am and finished by 9:45 am. I was nice and cool in the morning. There weren’t many people until about 8:00 am and it became super crowded. The trail had a pretty decent incline but nothing crazy. I probably would only recommend this trail during the week when there are less people. I took my dog and she loved it.

Great views and well-marked trail up to the spur. The spur is mostly easy to follow, but there are portions that are poorly marked or over grown. I had to stop about 200 ft before the end because the trail adjacent to the spur peak is blocked by vegetation.

Fantastic hike up. Lots of shade. Steady uphill, nothing too drastic. Get an early start as this one is popular and gets crowded. Couldn’t for the life of me find a trail past the picture shown. There’s a beautiful overlook spot there, but then it’s just scrambling over rocks and I had no idea where to go. Turned back because there were some drop offs and didn’t want the dogs to get hurt going the wrong way.

Well maintained trail. You are either going up hill or down. Not much I between. Great views. Didn't run into too many people so social distancing was easy.

Did fletcher trail. Dry and pretty steep. Couldn’t find it to link on All Trails though. Gets pretty vertical and ends in the middle of the mountain beside a huge rock face. Enjoyed it with my dog.

Nice and relatively shady. Great for robust kids as well. Went on a hot day and it was still an enjoyable family hike.

Very nice trail, shaded most of the time through forest. Beautiful view of the Albuquerque plain down below and mountain tops above.
