HikingNo shade

Beautiful trail and well worth hiking a little beyond to reach the Rio Grande. Very little shade once you are out of the canyon. Take how much water you think you’ll need and double it!

I only did part of this trail today, but it was lovely! Came face to face with a bear (where I made a u-turn on the recording).

HikingNo shadeScramble

Flat trail for the first bit. Around 0.4 miles you see a sign for mitchel trail, don’t follow it up. Stay in the riverbed trail. About 3/4 of a mile up you’ll see a path heading left, upwards. Two cairns mark the sides. This is the path up to the arch. When in doubt pick after this point, pick the path that goes up. Nice trail but definitely a scramble at the top. Bring more water then you expect due to lack of shade, elevation, and the climb up.

Easy trail but not well marked. There are so many different trails in this canyon!

The views above are spectacular, but getting there is not easy. Very sandy, hot and slow at first. and then fast elevation gain.

I wound up only doing the Bayo Bench Trail since I couldn’t find the connector and the skies were turning black and thunder was rolling in. I decided to turn around and do in and out. It is a pretty easy and kid friendly trail. Minimal shade.

Wrong trail. View full map and scroll south and you can you see Ancho Rapid Trail. Ancho Rapid has some steep elevation changes coupled with loose rocks in some spots. Cows down by the river have denuded a lot of the vegetation. Meh... would not do this hike again.

Very simple hike, pretty flower, a few nice views at the beginning but mostly boring hike.

Easy hike, however not much to see. Takes about 2.5 hours to hike, and did not see any wildlife.

WalkingNo shade

This is a more of a walking / running route then a hike. Very handicap accessible route. Well maintained path with views of the canyon, albeit far from the best in town. Leave the good camera behind and just meander with your cell phone.

What goes up must come down- the very last bit was a bit too steep for me- still rewarding views near the top- definitely wish I had had gloves

This was a great trail! No shade for most of it, and the river is not very accessible. Bring lots of water, sunscreen, and snacks. Keep an eye out for snakes too. Pajarito springs is a small and beautiful treat along the way. I descended at the red dot trail head, hiked the river trail until I reached the intersection of blue dot, and then double back and ascended to red dot. I didn't want to walk 3 miles through town to get back to my car lol

This is not Ancho Rapids trial. The actually Ancho Rapids trail is great! It’s just down the road but. Completely exposed trail, leads you down to a private area of the Rio Grande. We went swimming, it was lovely!

The trail is flat for the first .6 or so miles and then goes straight up 550 feet with lots of scrambling to an incredible natural arch. Hand scrambling needed for much of the top portion. Trail was marked with cairns and wasn’t too difficult to find. Short, rewarding hike but don’t attempt if balance challenged at all given the level of scrambling required. One of the only hikes I’ve ever felt that going down was more strenuous than up.

We took our two year old dog with us on this hike, and we all loved it. We suck to the left hand trail and did it as an out and back. There are some trees for shade, but not a lot. This hike gives you a couple really great views

One of my favorites! The snow is completely melted and the Jeep trail is dry. Saw a baby bear this morning on the East side just East of the Townsite chairlift. No mamma bear sighted, but a good reminder to be extra careful and vigilant when enjoying the outdoors.

Hiked Natural Arch via Old Mitchell Trail on 5/16/20. Was very surprised by this short but rewarding hike. The Arch and view from the top is spectacular. The hike is very straight forward and well marked. The hike is uphill and a little steep, but very short. We took are two grandsons ages 1 and 3. They had a great time crawling on the rocks and arch. There is not very much shade on this hike. Plenty of parking on the street and a shaded area to eat lunch. I would recommend wearing hiking boots.

Hiked Diablo Canyon to the River on 5/15/20, 6 miles round trip. The Canyon is beautiful and worth the trip. Typical Canyon hike with lots of color, high walls, and cooler temperatures in the Canyon. The Canyon had a lot of climbers when we went hiking in the evening. If you like river hikes the river is spectacular. It runs through a very colorful canyon. Bring your swim suit and water shoes to play in the river. The water was warmer than I thought. If you hike the extra mile to the river you will be in full sun and sand. Do some research. I am pretty sure Old Buckman road will take you closer to the river. The road to Diablo Canyon has a lot of wash boards and dust. Any vehicle can make it down the road. There are several primitive campsites at the trail head.
