Great trail, difficult to warm me ok. 32 degree day, just long enough to feel tired and exhilarating. Really enjoyed it

Great hike. Some climbs but nothing too steep. Our kids enjoyed the short loop and the distance was perfect for them. Ages 11, 9 and nearly 4.

Very easy trail. Especially good for kids. Our 4 year old did it with no problem. Some houses throughout but we only saw one other family on the trail.

10-14-19 Good workout. A few places to stop and enjoy some awesome views of Angel Fire and the Moreno Valley. The top half gets Steep. The lift was closed so we walked down. Took about 5 hours total including time spent at the top.

We needed a respite from straight uphill trails and this filled the bill! We started on Deer trail and then hit Coyote, came down Bear and took Bobcat back to the car. It's mostly flat with some gentle inclines through mostly pine forest with some aspen thrown in. The trails wind through greenbelt land through some houses. It was secluded and quiet. It was also nice for our dogs to be off leash and romping around. We only encountered one other couple which prompted us to leash the dogs but never saw another person. A delightful hike.

Nice stroll through the woods. Lots of houses around the trail so it’s not entirely solitude. The kids (4&9) did really well on it with little complaint. Overall great easy little trail.

Bobcat trail started in the open but went through a loosely populated forest with signs of the recent burn. Unfortunately, it was closed with caution tape over a bridge about 0.2 miles from the visitor center. We were able to double back and catch a few other trails.

The trail was very well kept and the signs were very clear. There were lots of other hikers and some folks with their dogs. Saw some deer and heard an elk moving around not more than 300 yards away.

We took the Chili Express to the top and hiked the small loop at the top of the mountain before coming down. Great views of the valley. A few steep and slick areas but overall doable for just about anyone. Granted that is coming down :)

Picnic tables and benches near the top with a great view of the valley below. Steep and narrow in places, but well worth the effort. Saw deer along the trail. Small stream near the bottom.

This was a surprisingly really nice and fun trail. I had my 8 year old and my two 4 year olds with me. Took us about two hours to complete it.

Well maintained and enjoyable. Did the whole loop then stopped at the Farmers Market for some goodies at the end. The coyote part of the trail was pretty difficult for us as novice bikers, but it was still fun.

Lovely, short hike. Took me just under an hour and I’m a low lander. Saw lots of birds, squirrels, and a deer. The first half gets the blood moving but the second is quite pleasant.

I hope you’re used to high elevation! We were hugging and puffing. All 5 of us completed this hike. Including our 10 year old!

Well maintained trail. Lots of birds, deer and wildflowers! Very enjoyable hike.

We hiked this trail this morning with our dogs (8 & 11yo) and we took the long route. It was a beautiful hike with lots of shade and wildflowers. We watched a storm coming in over the adjacent mountains and got a light rain for the last 3/4 mile or so, which was nice. The condition of the trail was very good and everything was well marked. As far as the difficulty, as older people (almost 60) who live in an urban setting not much over sea level, we were really cursing all the climbing.... it was strenuous for us, but we just got here 18 hours ago so I’m sure tomorrow will be better. All in all... it’s a lovely trail with beautiful views across the valley & golf course.

Great hike today! The trail map “upper loop” and “lower loop” then the trail marking “short loop” and “long loop” are a bit confusing. Then we ended up somehow missing what used to be the “end of the trail” which usually has bridges, small stream/brook, tiny waterfalls and I’d promised my boys (ages 3 & 5) they were coming. So we had to go back a bit to actually enjoy that part (we had no trouble with this in the past, so I’m not sure what exactly changed/switched/merged). But we never felt unsafe or unmarked. I’d hate that other people may also miss that part - to me it’s the best part to enjoy on the way down! The small boys did great with the incline, we all enjoyed the views and enjoyed an early picnic lunch at the picnic table at the top. We enjoyed a pretty easy hike back down.

Easy to moderate hiking trail. Great shade from the trees and good view of mountains. Walked about half the trail with a 4 and 5 year old no problem. If you are looking for a great view of Eagle's Nest Lake take a left, to the Ho Chin Min trail

Nice little pretty well-travelled trail with only a few minor Ups and Downs. We were able to get several kids age 3-5 around the loop without too much trouble. Pretty forest setting, with a little bit of a view briefly into the valley to the south, we stopped to snack and enjoy it with the kids. A good warm-up trail to get everyone used to the altitude. We also parked down at the Lake’s main parking lot and walked along the lake trail to extend our walk a bit, though there is parking available at the trailhead.

There was no parking available only further away by the Monte Verde Lake Office but short nice walk. The area reminds me of Austria. Besides that not many complaints. Beautiful scenery. Good hike to take kids.

pretty much a walk-about through woods & house, not much top it

Did this trail today for second time this summer. Beat original time by 13 mins. This is a very steep ascent initially and a great leg workout. Great views that never get old.

We parked at the Visitors Center and the path is on the right behind, it is very easy to reach and always well signposted. Good 7.5-kilometer trek through the Deer, Coyote Trails and then up the Power Line for a good view, it made the trek more intense as it climbs a lot, back and forth. We continued until the Bear Trail and finished with the Bobcat. The trail is well maintained and diversified between slopes and descents on the valleys, beautiful meadows, drier areas ... A real pleasure

Small hike friendly, very accessible. We loved the lush green areas. The small loop to see the Big Tree is also worth a visit, a small stream runs right by its side and makes the place simply fairy. I would definitely stay there again, but to train to run in the forest because there is not much difference in altitude.

Nice path, rather well indicated. We hear the road below but a walk worthwhile because the path in the woods is well marked and some views of the landscape are not to be missed. Pretty athletic overall because it climbs a little at the beginning or end, it depends on which way we start.
