Tough trail, lots of boulders but with nice breaks of relatively level sand. Lightly trafficked so you’re not passing or yielding to other hikers all the time

I took my in-laws (67 and 70) and they handled it nicely. Very well kept and awesome places for pictures.

Nice easy hike. If you want to avoid the bikers I recommend taking the side trails. Very pleasant overall.

Nice hike. Took the “more difficult” trail in and the “easy” path out. Would recommend this route the views from the easy path are great! Quick hike!

Great spring hike, but do wish there was better signage along the way...thank goodness for snow and footprints to let us know we were still on the right path. If I was to do it again this time of year, I'd take my snowshoes.

Awesome trail.

I went on a Thursday morning . I had the place to myself. The trails were marked moderate and were that. They were well marked . Scenery was great especially all the different mine shafts. I had a wonderful few hours.

great way to train for marathons, bike races or even just a walk with the family. I live on the west side and have done this trail from beginning to end for years. It is big enough that provide different experiences and accessible enough for even the most casual of hikes.

great short hike with cool views of the hills. good for beginners

Great trail and beautiful views at the Lake. Did it in a lifted 4Runner. No problems at all. Very fun and rewarding trail.

Really enjoyed this hike. My youngest who is 7 with my middle child 11 and oldest being 13 had no problem getting after it. My wife and I really enjoyed it. Would recommend anyone to this trail.

This hike has the best view from the top! It snowed on us the whole way. One thing it doesn’t tell you is when you reach what looks like end on this app you reach a intersection and go through the fence and it takes you to the top! Great time for sure

Nice, easy up and down trail. Much of the trail is shaded. It’s well marked and offers a variety of options and distances. Every once in a while, you get a break in the trees and the views are great. Parking lot has a lot of spaces and was not totally full on a Saturday afternoon. Dog friendly as long as you keep them on a leash. I recommend for all ages and abilities.

Beautiful views!

Did this as the loop and 164 had sections of ice and snow. There was nothing technical about the hike at all. Beautiful scenery along the way but harder to see at the peak because of denser trees. Biggest cairn ever and stone chairs let you know you made it.

Nice, easy hike. If you feel adventurous you can get off the beaten path and explore a couple of caves along the way. Some of the cave hikes are quite a bit harder with steep inclines, loose gravel and some scrambling required.

Very wooded and shaded, leads out to the Rio Grande which is cool. Not really any elevation or any difficult parts. Would be great for kids or anyone else looking for an easy relaxed hike.

Very nice hike. Easy and relaxing.

One of my favorite hikes to do with my dogs! Esp at dusk with the sun setting and the city lighting up. It never seems super busy at the times I have been there especially on the brisk windy days, which are oddly my favorite because it reminds me of Living in Wyoming

well worth it. user friendly

Although on here it says that it is a camping spot, there are clearly marked signs that say it is a private property and that there is no overnight parking or camping. The beginning of the trail you walk past 4-5 signs that say no trespassing and you are walking down basically some ones driveway. Extremely Misleading information which can lead to a 5,000-10,000$ fine for trespassing and camping in non designated areas.

Beauty and magic. Take your time. Enjoy it.

This should be designated as a bicycle trail as the number of cyclists greatly outnumber hikers, at least midday on a Sunday. It's hard to hike when you have to get off the trail every minute or two to let bikers (who ignore the signs that say bikers yield to hikers) pass. This was our first time on the trail and had a difficult time following the map because the trails are not well-marked. There are a few places where two or three trails branch off and there are no signs telling which is the one you want. The map and signs are great if you know where you're going already, but not helpful for a first timer. The scenery is nice but it's not an enjoyable hiking experience.

Love the camp sites
Looks like the bridge to get to the picnic tables was washed out?

Nice, short hike with a beautiful view of the Sandias.

The water is gorgeous at the bottom and the hike back to the top makes drinking a cold one at the end totally guilt free

Excellent trail for running. There is plenty of shade and a waterfall. I'll make this one of my regular run spots.

I’ve been out to the Gap to ride and hike several times now and enjoy it. I rode on a Saturday morning and didn’t see a soul whereas Franklin mountains would be chock a block full. I got all the way to the top of Webb mountain and decided to turn ; I didn’t want to take my bike among the Spanish Daggers. ( the trail disappeared) You can tell not a lot of people hike this

Good moderate trail.. just got to get to know it better

Best scenic hike in NM. The colors in the landscape are unreal! Every turn reveals something new. No better way to show the changing landscapes of our beautiful state.
