Can get challenging past the 8-9 mile mark averaging 3-4 mph.....

nice easy hike. Not well marked.

Awesome for trail running, for dogs, and to check out the gorge. Easy downhill down and uphill back.

I am not sure what the other reviewer's experienced, but it was not what we saw. the trail is a dirt road then after walking through someone's property it becomes undicernable as to what is a trail when we tried to stick to the line on the app it said we were at the end only to be looking at dead end. after wondering way off what it said was the way, we found what appeared to be or what used to be a pool and the stream next to it was warm. but looked nothing like the picture or the description. we have used this app many times and this is the first bad experience.

I have thought about this place quite often. It looks a lot different since 1971. It takes me back to another time. Many hour were spent in those pools. I miss those people I was with. Only two of us left. I will be back to visit soon. It says to enter a star rating before submitting this. LOL At night looking up...More stars than could be counted by man. Only god knows how many. In 1971...5 stars

Fun and flowy. Great open space for dogs.

spectacular views from the rim of the canyon. easy hike that really shows off the beauty of northern NM.

Walked about halfway to the gorge from the trailhead on Trader's trail. I think this would be fun on a MTB. It was a nice, leisurely stroll and not challenging at all. The views are nice. If we'd had more time we would have gone all the way down to the river--I estimate that would be 1 hr in and 1 hr out.

Nice easy trail for a walk just south of Taos. Beautiful views of Taos Mountain.

the springs are magical and hypnotic. spiritual place for sure. short walk to springs. used directions from all trails and they seem to have been corrected from since other commenter stated their incorrectness. I also used the other website mentioned to help with directions.

It was perfect! Such a cool little soak spot! The only problem is how to find it. There are so many possibilities when it comes to getting lost. I'd ask a local for directions before you go. That would be best.

Long, easy, relaxing hike! Tons of sage brush, purple cactus, and great views of the Rio Grande. This trail accommodates mountain bikers and horse riders probably more so than hikers, but it hiked fine nonetheless. Prepare for at least 4 hours at 10.5 miles.

Great trail. Excellent views of the Rio Grande river and Canyon. Enough up and down to make the 10 miles loop a good workout.
