Beautiful place that takes you back in history

Fantastic trek! Lots of great activities and it gets rugged the last two days. Just beautiful.

this is not the hardest trail, by any means, but it is very enjoyable. I took my 57 year old mom, who is pretty sedentary, and she was able to complete the full loop (with some grumbling though LOL). the trail is pretty sandy in some areas, with some small inclines, but nothing difficult. We came across a snake, not sure what kind, but I'm telling myself ITS NOT A RATTLESNAKE. it was about 3 feet long and skinny, light beige-y with brown spots/pattern. a decent amount of petroglyphs were visible, and I thoroughly enjoyed myself, snake sighting be damned :)

Great place to take kids

Previous reviewer is correct. Turned away at the gate due to "too many kids" being there - direct quote from the lady at the gate. Apparently these national forest trails will be open to the public again on the 12th.

Only rating one star because we couldn't get access to any of the glorieta trails because the Lifeway camp was not allowing access to anyone outside the camp while it was going on. Seems weird that a private company was blocking access to trailheads in a public National Forest for a camp that was no doubt using these trails for private use.

Awesome! Great history of the area!

It was an okay trail to get out of the house. There was some traffic and cool lizards along the way. The views weren't the greatest. Would recommend doing Soledad canyon because it's free and you can scale the sides at the end of the trail and get great views.
