Awesome hike, 4.4 miles round trip. No bugs did this hike in September not sure if that’s why. my dog had a great time.

Absolutely loved it. The trail was easy to follow, got there early so it wasn't too hot. The views are breathtaking, and very much worth the work to get up the trail.

Good trail! Doesn’t make it to three guns trailhead though. Definitely taking it farther next time

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!

Very nice trail that offers a steady uphill hike once you very about a half mile in. Be sure to go a bit past the top of the Piedra Lisa North trail and scramble up to sit a while on the rock outcropping there, which offers a lovely 360 view.

I would only recommend going off-trail like this if you have a good sense of direction and a friend. Do not go alone because some spots can be kind of sketchy, and there is some light climbing involved in going the way we did. Pathfinding is also easier with two people talking and looking. Lots of wild life sign and game trails, so be attentive and project your pressence with noise. We went late afternoon but there is plenty of shade in the forest. We made double sure to be back on trail before dark. Lots of fun!

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!

Enjoyed this hike/trail running. First couple miles were intense but definitely worth it.

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

Perfect afternoon hike! A nice short incline to great views!

This was my first time (08/21) doing the Pino Trail , and it was very enjoyable overall. I went ahead and took the Crest Trail to the Tram and rode that down. I had rides on both sides, which made it feasible to do it this way. The Pino portion took just under two hours and the Crest to the Tram an additional 1.5 hours or so. Pino was a bit overgrown at parts, so you may consider wearing pants instead of shorts. Neither Pino or Crest has much in the way of signs besides where it starts and ends, but it's fairly straight forward to follow. If I had to choose La Luz vs Pino/Crest, I would probably lean towards La Luz because of the views.

I recommend trekking poles because of the incline and decline. didn't go as far as I wanted as I had prior engagements! the chimney rock is awesome! loved it and the weather was perfect! loved the challenge and how hard it is!

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.
