Beautiful trail! Views from the beginning, all the way through to the end. Fairly moderate trail but the incline is consistent for the majority of the hike. Once you arrive at the top you’ll get an amazing view of both the eastern and western sides of the mountain. The trails are smooth so the way down is nice and easy on the knees lol. Definitely do this one!

So much fun! Lots of scrambling over boulders. My 5 year old loved it. A little more tricky for my husband carrying our 2 year old in the pack.

Great views of Albuquerque from the top. To hike this loop specifically takes a bit of attention to the map as there are lots of other trails that could lead you astray. This was my first hike in the area and definitely not disappointed!

easy grade, I wish I'd have had time to go farther...I'll definitely be back

Great hike to challenge yourself. The extra .4 miles in the middle of the trail is definitely worth the view. Thanks Kevin for hiking such a tough yet short trail. We started on the trail northeast and ended on trail southwest. Worth every minute of it.

Easy and fun hike - especially in the morning... cool breeze and very few people! I can't imagine doing this trail in the summer time - you would probably get heat stroke very quickly.

Sandy entire trail

Great hike , shorter but quite nice if you are trying to get acustkmed to the elevation. I drove from Florida so this was a nice entry. The last bit of the hike to the peaks can be rather technical.

highly recommend, great seeing so many petroglyphs! Kid friendly too, not very busy for a Saturday morning.

Great hike, relatively moderate until you split off of piedra Lisa. Then it becomes much more difficult. Scrambling at the top but well worth it!

Fun and gorgeous trail! Started at 8:30am and made it through 90% of the trail. Finished around 1:15pm with a few breaks. Around mile 3 the trail narrows and it becomes hard to social distance (just FYI for Covid). Good mix of shade and sun. Saw a few other hikers and dogs. Trail is not safe for your dog to be off leash. The trail is way too narrow and has steep drop-offs that make it dangerous for an off-leash dog. The last ~0.5 miles narrows substantially and I couldn’t get up with my dog. Otherwise, an extremely lovely hike that is challenging in some parts and has lots of nice views. Parking is is $3.

A fun hike that is tough but shorter. You get some great views of Albuquerque from the top.

Beautiful trail with views from start to finish. We are just getting back into hiking and this hike was challenging! We arrived around 8 on a Wednesday and it wasn't busy at all. I do suggest getting out early as it was very warm by the time we finished.

Great trail for a 5k trail run but the 89 degrees, 13% humidity, and 33MPH wind killed me!!

Fun for some close trail runs. Get out there early its hot! lovely city views! Dog friendly! easy/moderate depending on the heat.

Very sandy , beach like in places trail. Only a small area near any Petroglyphs if you are going for that reason. If so, go to one of the other trails nearby. This is mid May, we were before noon and it was extremely hot. No shade. Be sure to have water and a hat I’d recommend. Certainly not a good place for summer. I enjoyed the different topography from the foothills and mountains, and it was fine for a nice walk.
