First off - Great trail BUT would not say it is dog friendly - UNLESS they’re wearing booties. Went Sunday and Kals paws (my GSD) were cut badly. She’s had trouble walking the last few days. Paws are still not completely healed. Mostly my fault and I feel terrible! Just FYI for those of you who would not realize this. We were a couple miles in before turning back. Stay safe! -K

Recommend starting early from the Acoma side.Started from the Zuni side and regretted it.Dogs are only fine if your camping half way or only hiking part of it.Learn from my dumb mistake don’t take dogs after March and if so not all the way

Lava rocks. It’s tough but it’s a good workout.
Plan for water, hat and good hiking shoes.

Nice Hike! Don't let the lack of elevation change fool you! If you have never hiked on Lava rock before it can get tough in spots. Don't forget to knock out the El Calderon loop trail if you have time. just a short drive from this trailhead.

A nice hike. Good, early morning. Bring plenty of water and good shoes. Tarrain is mostly over lava rock.
