Went last weekend at about 10 AM and it got too hot and the climb to the summit was a bit too much. It would have been nice if there had been access to hand rails where the steps were located because it was difficult for those with knee issues. Enjoyed but trail maintenance and/or improvement would make it much more worthwhile.

This was a great hike. The canyons and views are amazing. I took my family and the summit climb was a bit too much for them. It was in the middle of a summer day, so the heat made it tough. If you are looking for a family hike, just avoid the summit climb and enjoy the lower trails and canyons.

The hike was challenging, but beautiful! The terrain changes significantly throughout the Trail, which keeps things interesting! I had a blast and enjoyed sitting on the large rocks at the top and enjoying the view!

Great trail there are many turn around spots along the way which is perfect for anyone with children. One of my very favorites because of the spectacular views!

This was a good trail but not at all accurate the lake is actually about eight miles in 16 miles round trip. Also be ready for some good inclines and lots of rocks as well as ATVs. I didn't make it to the lake but I look forward to trying again soon. Keep your eyes open for a small cave that was cool. I loved all the different kinds of flowers and the sound of the running water and birds when ATVs weren't flying past.

This is so far my favorite place I've hiked and camped at in New Mexico. So beautiful and peaceful. Hike up was not as bad as I thought it would be, took just over 3 hours; the switchbacks make the elevation gain not seem so bad. Even if there are a handful of people there it's easy to find a spot all to yourself.

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.

The trail was great but there was no lake. I would call it moderate to challenging

Great trail for the whole family. Views are wonderful.
