Had a great time! Went with older man I hike with and we managed to find some great offshoot areas. Just amazing stuff!

This is an up and down fairly easy hike, allow 2 hours and 1 water bottle. There is absolutely no shade anywhere, none, and a couple of sections get slippery on loose gravel. Incredible views of the Rio Grande valley, Dona Ana, Las Cruces and the Organ Mountains are why you do this hike. Fossils? Good luck, never seen or found any, not even a fossilized leaf imprint.

The map as shown for this trail almost gets you to where the fossilised tracks are; look at the "trackways loop" trail to see the section where you come off the ridgeline and down into the wash. When you follow the wash for just a bit, you will see a big information sign a little bit up on the hillside to the North (maybe more Northeast). This marks where you can find fossilised ferns and feet and probably other stuff but I'm no archeologist by any means. I tried following the Robledo Mountain-Prehistoric trackways trail track file, but the wash got a bit overgrown for me and then I headed up to a hill which was a motorized road and not that interesting to the West, so head back to the starting point on the motorized road (saw 2 motorized people). I'm not sure about any landside or any difficulty on the trackways loop but I did not go on the south side of the loop. The North side of the loop here is in great condition and in fact trail crews were making new trails while I was there.

Easy hike on an established trail. Not much to see. Perfectly good for beginners and families.
