beautiful in fall

Great views, lighting was perfect against the mountains in the morning. Fall weather was perfect-cool, but sunny. Trail is fairly narrow and a little overgrown thanks to recent rains. Saw three different tarantulas.

Good hike to do, specially after if rainfall to be able to see waterfall. Also easy enough to hike not too strenuous. Enjoyed it.

Beautiful! Hiked the trail a few days after a heavy rain and sound of running water was everywhere. Waterfalls were gorgeous. Moderate trail not well marked, but very enjoyable.

near city, limited rocks

I love this trail, the best on my visit here! I had heard about it from someone I met on another trail and he gave me directions to turn at the dumpsters but no name for the trail. I found this trail on the app and compared the directions and knew it was where he was talking about! It was absolutely beautiful, a little difficult at times and had I not ran into three people who were headed on the trail just as I arrived I most likely would not have done it alone. Eventually we all ended up hiking together and it was totally amazing and I made new friends! We went round a couple of loops and hiked across the canyon to some caves which extended our hike, and according to my maps it ended up being around 7 1/2 miles.

Did this hike late in October , spectacular scenery and streams were running from recent rain , go to the left at beginning of loop , other hikers told us this too and it seemed like the better way , took us 3 hours to complete , not in a hurry cause we were taking lots of Pics

This is our kids favorite trail to hike.

Fantastic trail!!

Enjoyable hike with pretty views. Trail is well-marked. It is uphill for the first half, but not too steep or difficult. We finished in about 3 hours going at a leisurely place and stopping for lots of pics.

good trail... harder to find trailhead but realized it was through the residential area. only saw one other couple. Great 5 mile hike.

Awesome views and trail. Bring your water did this early and enjoyed the sunrise. Bit of a challenge but trail in good condition.

One of the most beautiful trails in Aguirre Springs. Although it was a rainy day, we enjoyed a lot the astonishing vistas of the pine tree forest and the rock formations, a wonderful landscape!

This is one of my favorite trails, beautiful landscape with canyons and rock formations.

Great hike. 2 1/2 hours stopping for lots of pictures. Take breaks! went early saw the sunrise on the drive to and that alone worth it. Not a soul around, nice. Wear hike boots.

This was our first hike as a family and we loved it! Beautiful scenery and not too hard, though I'd definitely recommend wearing good shoes. The waterfalls and Stone ruin are so worth it! We saw a variety of birds and have seen Mule Deer every time so far. Well traveled trail, but very Rocky in places.

Tip: if you're going after the waterfall and Stone house, follow the trail to the LEFT until AFTER the bench...we went RIGHT at the first fork and ended up going the LONG way around haha

why pay $5 for dripping springs when you can come right next door to soledad canyon for free?! it has better views and a better waterfall as well. I highly recommend this trail.

Great hike, make sure you have 5 dollars exactly to pay for parking at the station, it has to be left in an envelope. It's very easy to get off the trail, so pay attention.

God is good !!!

Really enjoyed this trail. It was so hot, but the views the whole way made it worth it.

Beautiful scenery! Great to do early in the AM. Some parts were strenuous, but overall good hike! Breathtaking view at the highest elevation.

Awesome trail! Great one to do early in the AM and to take visiting friends and family. I'd go on it again.

Nice moderate hike with beautiful scenery and an awesome view from the summit where you can see both El Paso, TX and Las Cruces, NM. Beware of rattlesnakes in summer and fall.

First time here and it couldn’t have been better! Easy enough my wife and mother finished it, yet challenging enough that my cousin and I were able to enjoy it. We went at two different paces which makes it great for all levels of experience.

definitely moderate difficulty & poorly marked but gorgeous views

Great trail! Not to be taken lightly though. My friend and I took our 3 dogs expecting it to be much easier than it was and ended up using all of our water on our dogs and not much on our selves. But still a great hike and amazing views!

Great well maintained Park Service trail with benches even. Easy walking and good footing. Great views and vegetation
