This is a very nice trail. In this time of spring, the plants begin to bloom and the trees to turn green, you are walking in a forest full of trees and pines. Although some sections are steep with some rocks, this is not an impediment to walk the trail, it is not difficult.. Amazing view of the Organ Mountains, and all the scenery, fantastic!

Unfortunately this trail was hit hard by the 2013 fire and if you remember it from before it is devastating to go now. Only the underbrush has grown back, so the forest floor is green, but the amount of dead blackened pines is sad to see. And it's too wide open now for any wildlife to make an appearance. We didn't even see or hear many birds. The trail is also littered with fallen trees. Not a problem to cross, but definitely needs maintenance.

Nice afternoon hike. Great scenic views. Definitely would be a challenge biking it.

For the first mile to a mile and half there isn't much shade so I would suggest getting started early. After that you will run into a stream and tree coverage. You will follow the stream but it does split so be sure to stay to the right. I would suggest following the trail according to this app. The hike isn't too long but there is a lot bolder of climbing. Once you get directly below the tram you will see the wreckage. It's a difficult hike but well worth it.
