Great short trail has many add on trails so just check route. Definitely a great biking trail if you choose that.

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.

My favorite hiking trail because it has multiple paths and views of the entire city

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.
