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!

Awesome trail.

Great short walk. Saw coyotes, hawks, and lots of jackrabbits. There's no shade, of course, so this one is best early morning or late afternoon/early evening. The signage could use some repair but otherwise great.

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.

This was a very easy - moderate trail. I started at 8 am in August and took my time waking and taking pictures and finished about 10:30 ( I went slow look and pics). Bring water and there is a bench half way to rest. Great hike for families with kids (no strollers or bike).

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.

The first .5 mile you won’t immediately see petroglyphs, but you start to see more after that. It was an enjoyable hike!

The New Mexico Veterans Memorial Park deserves a good, long, contemplative visit. The rest of the trail goes through homeless camps and trash.

Too many mountain bikes. Trail is awesome.

Nice wide trails for the most part with very nice footing underneath made up of dirt & decomposed granite. Quite a few mountain bikers are on these trails as are many people running & hiking them. There is some shade in places, but not like being in a forest so I suggest sunscreen, hat & water. Suitable for everyone. When you get to Elena Gallegos park, there are shelters, picnic areas & bathrooms. There's even a spot with 2 hitching posts & a picnic table. Since these trails cut across arroyos, be aware of changing weather conditions up on the mountain!
