Nice flat ride. Pavement is smooth for most part. Started up at Alameda Parkway and headed south for about 11 miles, then rode back north

A short but sweet trail leading up a hill. I pondered many a petroglyph and its origin. Great hike in October full of wildfires. Personally I like longer and more challenging hikes! ;)

My child loved the park. The trail is easy and stroller friendly. the park is nicely shaded but the trail is pretty open. Very nice park trail.

Worth seeing! Enjoyed the macaw and other glyphs.

Nice area to take pictures. We’ve seen rabbits, coyotes, a small corn snake, ducks, geese. Worth a visit. Can use strollers, bikes etc since it’s paved.

Easy short and crowded. Petroglyphs look like they were done by some hippies in the 60’s but now I’m dating myself.

This trail is the easiest of the Petroglyph National Monument trails. It also has the least amount of glyphs. There was also a lot more people at this location. Nice little walk, though.

Fun trail up the hill, petroglyphs were neat, we had fun finding them!

This is a great exercise path, paved with lots of space. But it's not much of a nature hike unless you take a horse trail and go down to the river.

Wandered to see the petroglyphs which were lovely. Trail is very easy and rather short. Good view from the top.

Pretty easy, introductory trail. Took us about 45 min for the first loop taking our time to read all the signs and take pictures. The second two are much shorter, and faster, but took our time.

Not Bad for a city trail. Busy and noisy, but pretty riparian views

Great paved trail for walking, running, biking and horseback riding. We also brought our dog along on a leash. Lots of wildlife and views of the bosque and Sandias.

the trail itself is okay. It's paved and wide enough for bikes and people. that being said, there's a lot of trash along the trail.

Cool climb and interesting history behind this area. The views were amazing and the rock was cool..!

Very untraditional (= not Texan) hike today - big snow flakes flying right into our eyes and rocks were extremely icy and slippery. We tried to find petroglyphs, old indian images on rocks, but they were mostly covered by snow. But the highlight of the day for our little Texans was building a snowman Olaf, of course :) If not icy, this is a short and quite easy hike even with small kids.

Short and sweet. $1 entrance fee.

During trip to NM 10/17...This was the safest trail for me in October 2017. I wanted so badly to do a higher one in the same location but given the ankle it wouldn't be a good idea. so Vida it is! Alone on the trail except for a raven... Something awe inspiring and spiritual about this place. BEAUTIFUL

Nice moderate trail. However too many traffic lights along the way so you end up stopping often behind each light. The ride was nice but having to stop and go a bit frustrating.
