The Gila is Sooo nice, hot springs, camping, river crossings, canyons, wildlife.

Very nice area need to us grudging grave trail to access west fork many river crossings and a cliff dwelling

Very nice hike, at this time-west fork trail is only accessible by this route. Look for cave dwelling at about mile 3, many river crossings and wildlife, basically level terrain

Trail from the pass becomes difficult to the Peak. It is easy to lose trail on your way down, just maintain the cairns you followed up and you should be fine on your way back to the pass. Awesome trail! Views are tremendously beautiful!

My girlfriend and I hiked this trail mid-day in a Friday. Did not encounter anyone. The trail wasn’t to bad to hike and had great views, Overlooking the forest and within. We came across plenty on wild life and was able to hear an elk close by but did not see it. I recommend this trail if you are in the area. But it can be difficult if you’re not in decent shape.

I just started to really get into hiking this year, so I consider myself a beginner. This is by far the hardest trail I have completed so far. I felt good the first 5 miles, The last 3 miles were very hard. La Luz Trail is no joke. Throughout the whole trail there is amazing views. La Luz Trail is for sure an accomplishment for a beginning hiker.

Great trail (: We didnt go all the way in the cave but it was pretty cool. Awesome veiw.
