I hiked parts of this trail on my 1st trip to Philmont. We were dropped at the Kit Carson Museum and stopped by Zastrow for some duct tape ball, and then hiked to the Rayado River Camp.

This was beautiful! It is definitely worth it to see the Crab Nebula petrographs and making it to the top was cool!!

Lots of fun! Keep in mind the park closes at 5 during the winter and a park ranger will walk you down around 4 even if you have not finished the hike, which was a bummer. But! Still beautiful and worthwhile.

Really cool hike with slot canyons and great views! Took about an hour and half to do entire hike.

Awesome bro

Nice and easy trail. Great for beginners. Don't expect the spring to be like a waterfall or anything. Overall great trail!

The huge rock formations are other worldly in places. Its very cool.

This place is wonderful because of its beauty for sure, but the history of it makes it even better. At the top of the bluff, there are ruins dating back to 1200CE. Below, there is a small lake that later provided water for travelling Spaniards and pioneers settling the West. There are ancient petroglyphs and beautiful inscriptions carved in Spanish and English. Its a very cool place.
