Easy walk, great vegetation and nice pinnacle to climb if desired at mike 2.3.

This took us 2:30 to complete 5.4 miles. It is a well marked trail with a few ups and downs but was very enjoyable with wonderful views. It is rated Moderate but compared to other moderate trails in the area, it was easy. It is popular with mountain bikers and we had to step off the trail to let them pass.

We actually hiked about 4 miles but forgot to record until we were turning back. This part of the trail is popular with bikers and long-distance runners. It was pretty hot and there was no shade. Nothing particularly interesting either but we still enjoyed ourselves and views of Las Cruces below.

Well marked with some great views. Go up and down through many orroyos but nothing severe. can be rocky although most of the trail is small stone. Definitely a moderated trail. No shade or places to sit so bring lots of water. Overall a solid 4 stars!

It’s my 2nd time on this trail. We saw a deer on this day. I would rate this as « easy ». It feels like a long walk. Trail is still well marked.

It’s a nice trail that’s well marked. If lucky, you will see wildlife. We saw deers. The end of the trail is pretty. We met a couple of bikers on this trail. Overall, it’s a good hike.

Well marked trail that was easy to walk. Wide open terrain with no shade, so you'll need to wear a hat and sunscreen. There's a great rock formation not far from Soledad Canyon that was a lot of fun to climb. Only saw one other person on the trail, but that might be because we started our hike around 1130 and it was already hot. Enjoy!

Another review states that this is "more like a walk than a hike". While this is not a hike in that there are no rock formations to scramble over and the trail is very well-defined without brush to battle, the terrain is very rough. There is enough elevation gain to know you're climbing and a good portion of the trail is rocky. I would consider it a walk/hike hybrid. Beautiful desert scenery with a possibility of seeing wildlife. I heard coyotes howling, then a lone one trotted past me. I also saw two groups of javalina. I'm definitely doing this one again, hopefully farther that the 12.5 miles I was able to walk before giving up; i walk a LOT and this trail showed me who was in charge. It wasn't me..

First to Review

More like a walk than a hike. Other than the distance I would rate as easy not medium. The prettiest part is the south end so if you only have time to do part of it start there. No trouble staying on the trail.
