I went well the 1.9 miles that’s shown for the trail. Well marked and then you are on your own scrambling up the rocks in what is water flow track from the Sandia’s.

Nice scenery but way too many bikers. I went out on this loop with my dog. Nice views of the foothills and of ABQ the other way. But I am not exaggerating that at least 10 bikers passed us by. None of he mused any bells, some yelled out when they were close. So I was constantly moving off Trail and trying to pull my dog out of the way. This might be a nice hike to take a visitor on because it’s pretty easy and not much elevation gain. But for myself I doubt I’ll do it again.

Beautiful views, follows a ravine, well shaded in the forest. The first few miles are a slow descent but quickly turns into a steep scramble during the last half mile.

Fun trail! I ran it counter clockwise. Solid climb, with a super fun down hill through the wash.

In a word... Petroglyphs :D
