Very nice, easy going trail. I'm 6 months pregnant and prefer relatively flat trails these days. I got a late start around 10:00, took it pretty easy and steady, and it took me a little over an hour. According to my phone, I only did 2.4 miles because I didn't do part of the loop around the halfway point. Only saw 2 people on bikes, but lots of marks from boots, dog paws, and bikes in the sand. I really appreciated the trail markers that are every so often to make sure you're still on the same path. There are a few other trails that intersect with it, so you could make lots of different combinations if you wanted to. I will come back here for a nice steady walk outside.

It's really a nice trail to the canyon. Gentle breeze. Good view. There is a creek down the canyon. It took us 40 mins to go down and 1 hour to be back.

This is an arroyo walk, and the trail end is in the middle of nothing! There are some nice views at the beginning, but then it’s a flat arroyo. We walked past the blue fence another mile out to get to the Rio Grande... that was worth the flat hike but we had to go 6 miles round trip.

we started this hike late morning and probably should have started sooner because there's not a lot of shade. Bring plenty of water and a hat and enjoy scrambling the last quarter mile. The path is Rocky but doable.

It's a great view from the top but has been washed out from recent floods. Bring extra water because there really isn't any shade.

Gate was open as of mid-july. HUGE ruts in the dirt road along with HUGE boulders in the road. Not sure if forest service is going to clear them/ fix ruts. Springs were beautfiul as always and pretty busy. Absolutely only drive down there in a lifted vehicle with mud tires. Do not drive stock anything to the springs. One of the boulders is too big to drive even a smart car around.

Easy trail that ends at the reservoir. The trail is completely washed out in the middle for a bit, but is still passable with a little effort (You will be walking over small streams, branches, and pipes before stepping back up onto the trail, so it is not as accessible as the rest of the trail). The reservoir is fun to swim in and is a nice ending view.

Recording is one way-return leg. Nice wildflowers and views at end point into Valles Caldera.
