There you go again New Mexico. I thought I was just going on a little trail run in the dusty desert and you gave me an out-of-body experience. You showered me with beauty. The ground beneath me had never felt so alive. I couldn’t help but smile from ear-to-ear. I ran like a little kid on a playground. I fall more in love with you each and every day.

the highlighted path shown is incorrect and would require a scramble up a very steep and rocky area. it's not a actual trail. have to go long way around. is actually 8 miles

Great loop trail with amazing views. We went hiking on December 31, barely anyone there. Not sure what it'd be like if a lot of mt bikes were sharing the trails. Be warned, the trail down off Dragon's Back is not well marked (and not shown on the periodic trail-signs), in a saddle, must be a steep scramble--we missed it, and hiked the entirety of Dragon's Back, adding 2 miles to this loop

Best scenic hike in NM. The colors in the landscape are unreal! Every turn reveals something new. No better way to show the changing landscapes of our beautiful state.
