Awesome area for hiking, Trail running, mountain biking and bouldering. There is no shade in this area. Go early to beat the heat. Must bring water. There’s no water sources there.

very easy and short walk. I loved it and it had some nice scenery . Going clockwise is the easier hike.

One of my favorite local hikes. Easy trail up to the last few hundred feet near the peak which is probably why it's rated as moderate.

Very fast in and out hike with a challenging scramble up the last 50 feet of elevation. Took two large dogs along, don’t recommend it as they had a heck of a time getting over the rocks. Would have preferred a “liftable” furry companion. Lots of other hikers, bikers, and runners. Great photos of Albuquerque, Mt. Taylor and the Crest.

Moderate trail, with many different possible paths to follow around the grounds. Lovely views. Just be aware of where you step.

Excellent trail for a morning hike. There were a few people in the trail as we headed out and several mountain bikers riding the trail as it got later in the morning.

Great short hike for an afternoon in Albuquerque! Our 2 month old corgi puppy loved this hike! Very fun and has a climb at the end for spectacular views!

Great place to relax and read a book or watch a sunset after a long day. It's a nice short hike with an amazing view if you don't mind some rock scrambling.
