One of my favorites in the Cibola National Forest. It is also not too difficult/long so it makes for a nice short hike- but great if you want a little break from the city. There is a lot of shade cover during the first 1/2. The views at the top are beautiful. We spotted a horned lizard!

Loved this trail. I went earlier in the morning and did not run into anyone during my entire hike. Easy trail with lots of senery and views. Some spots are a little rocky but overall the footing is good.

Beautiful, easy hike with some fantastic views of the Sandias! Pathway is a little narrow throughout, but it's thoroughly enjoyable!

First trail completed with the family. Our 4 year old didn't seem to have much trouble. Trail was 1 mile, then a .25 mile loop, then the same 1 mile back. Plenty of nice views and scenery. And a small cave!
