I hiked this trail and wasn't impressed. approximately 3/4 of the trail is Jeep road, not very challenging or secluded (I was passed by three vehicles). The trail is almost always in the trees with no scenic views. I never found the trail up to the peak and ended up "bushwhacking" through the woods to the other side of the peak. It took forever to find the trail back down. There are so many beautiful trails in Northern New Mexico, I would make a better choice.
