It is a really beautiful hike up with Sandia Mountains with nice views and well maintained trails. It's an out and back trail with the majority of the out part of the hike uphill. Be careful going back/down hill as there's still a couple of slippery ice spots.

Did the loop going up through the canyon. It was very icy and still had a lot of snow on the trail. I wore snow boots so had no issues getting up the trail. I would not recommend trying it in regular shoes or shoes that are not water proof, until the ice and snow melts.

11th Jan. Spikes might be needed. Going down the three guns is quite challenging and not too rewarding so I would not go completely down again. Just proceed enough to enjoy the view and then go back to embudo again. Overall it is a nice hike but mostly on the embudo side.

My husband and I did this trail and it was fun! It took us about an hour and a half to complete it. We did get off track a couple of times but found our way back! Lots of cyclists going pretty fast but overall we would do this hike many times.

Awesome peaceful trail. Glad I got visit it on my short stay in ABQ - hopefully I’ll get to come here more often if/when I move here :-)

Great trail. Easy terrain, still a little muddy after snow last week. Make sure you bring $2 on the weekends ($1 Mon-Fri) for the park entrance fee.

Moderate trail with a a mild ascent and enjoyable descent. Clearly marked trails. Dog and kid friendly.

What a great day for a hike!! Perfect weather!! First hike of the decade!! This hike, which is more of a walk, is relatively flat, and transitions from paved road to crushed dirt to sand... and a walk along side the river is nice anytime of the year!!

Beautiful hike. There was some snow on the ground and it was slippery so be careful because there is a lot of cactuses

This was NOT an easy trail. Some parts were VERY steep. Very glad I had my yak traks. Nice views. Hard to tell at multiple points where the trail was. Glad I used the map.
