Enjoyed the trail. Make sure to get there early to beat the heat & to find parking. The lot was full when I got there at 9am. I parked back down the hill. I was expecting an easy hike. It wasn't technical, but steep. I wasn't prepared to say the least. Some good shade but areas of direct sunlight, heated up pretty quick. Overall a great in & out trail. Definitely do it again!

A nice hike that is a close to Albuquerque for a morning trip. The volcanoes are cool to see but the trails to the tops of most have been closed off. The trail is easy to follow but pretty rocky in sections. Dog friendly! No shade!

good short trail. Most people only seem to go part way up.

A solid hike. It’s kind of hard to follow for the first 1-2 miles because of other trails that join or washouts. I would recommend a gps device. There are some solid views of Albuquerque but the trail doesn’t really go anywhere unless you continue up the La Luz trail. The parking at the tramway is now $3.

Lovely views, easy hike. Would give it 5 stars except there were lots of photos of petroglyphs and all the access points to see them were closed.

I love this trail and the view of the Sandias and Albuquerque from it.

Definitely a fun little trek to get a good view of the city. Not a very long trail and not too difficult to hike. Lot of good rock formations and photo opportunities.

Great trail had to do some climbing, but had a good time. Views are awesome and coming down is much quicker.

The views were spectacular, but the signage was unclear

It has a semi hard incline and isn't a simple stroll through the woods. But it can quickly give you a great view. I ran up it with my brother and we got to the top in less than an hour.
