This trail was so enjoyable! Of course, everything was pretty dead. It was a little muddy here or there but was generally dry, and the only ice that gave me trouble walking was the 1/2 mile connecting the Tramway trail to La Luz. Loved the hike. Everything looked beautiful in the sun on the way back to the trailhead.

Awesome trail - a little challenging (for those of us not use to the Albuquerque altitude), but really beautiful! Just be sure to check your map/gps, we got off trail a couple times, as it’s not marked and there are multiple forks, etc.

Not the prettiest trail in the Albuquerque area But definitely a good workout. With multiple trails leading into the trail it is fairly easy to get off on us for or separate trail. Some snow as of January 20 but only one spot was a little dicey and I was wearing running shoes.

Not too bad. Good views but nothing stunning! Some decent scrambles

Super easy loop with some really cool petroglyphs!

Still a lot of snow and ice above 7500 feet. Make sure you have snow and ice gear if you want to reach the top.

Nice easy walk.

Great hike... there were some spots that are still icy and on the upper end there is some snow. Trail is easy to follow. There are a couple spots where several trails come together but follow the recorded route and you’ll be fine. Coming down is pretty slick due to loose sand and crushed granite.

If you are trying to hike to the tram and restaurant, DO NOT go on a Tuesday. Beautiful hike but my girlfriend and I almost died when we made it to the top and realized everything was closed and the sun was already down. Had to call fire rescue.

January 18th. spikes and poles required. amazing view from the peak. be careful not to miss the trail on the first 2 miles.

Loved it but the wife hated it. Went down the canyon bed, which was almost completely snow and ice packed and a pretty rough terrain, definitely not suitable for an inexperienced hiker.

I wouldn't recommend this hike in January. Near the top it was very icy and steep.

Spikes are definitely needed after a mile and a half. (More snow is on the way tomorrow) Super chill trail, though, with barely anyone on it. Beautiful views at the top

Great hike. There are lots of side trails not marked on this map, snow run off and some overgrown areas. Despite that if you have a phone w this app and gps there's no chance of getting lost. Even w/o, just head up the canyon then down the canyon, easy peasy.

Hiked this on Thursday and it was great! mixed dirt/gavel/snow at base, full snow after about 1.5-2 miles. Wore yaktrax and had trekking poles, had no issues. Gorgeous in winter!

Was a nice hike, beautiful time of day.
