Been in both Summer and wintertime gorgeous both times. Easy. Kids can do it. Good for an afternoon of quick activity.

Can be crowded in the summer months but well worth it

Such an oasis surrounded by desert. Great sport climbing as well!

We loved this trail and there are only a few areas that dogs are not allowed. Our golden retriever had a ball on the Fillmore Trail and we just didn’t go on the trails where dogs are prohibited.

This trail was great for a short jog...my husband and I enjoyed breaking a sweat on the uphills.

Easy-to-follow and well-maintained network of trails. With clear markers and maps at junctions, you can customize your hike for whatever distance and duration you wish. The walking is pretty mild -- no major ascents or descents. An enjoyable and convenient Santa Fe hiking spot.

Nice hike, lake was frozen.
Most of the trail had tree cover, sunscreen optional.
Recommend micro spikes or something similar due to the ice/show.
Sign to trail-head road stated "4-wheel-drive" only, however there were vehicles in parking lot that were not 4x4. Was a very steep climb to the trail-head.
Arrived at the trail-head Sun around 1100 and parking lot was not full and had plenty of places to park.
Trail is marked with blue spray paint on the trees if you get lost.

This is a great trail I saw two Elk mid-way down Turkey Canyon. I recommend going clockwise, starting out with the Argentina Canyon Trail and come down the Turkey Canyon. The trail is extremely steep when you come off the Crest Trail onto Turkey Canyon.
