I think we do a route that just covers the falls. But the dogs love it! Especially the falls at the end. They always take a dip. The sad thing is people leave trash out there often. We load up the dogs pack with empty cans and bottles to take back out!

It's a nice hike that kids can tackle. Keep your kids and dogs close. There are rattlers out there.

Hermits Peak was on my bucket list. We took our Rio Gallinas middle school students on this hike. The hike took us 9 hours to complete (total) this included frequent breaks and stopping to eat lunch. As someone who isn't fit, this hike was a challenge but totally worth it. The views from the top were amazing. I would like to do this hike again one day.

Pretty nice and average difficulty trail. Finished with my friends at a very recreational pace and within 2.5hrs.
It can be better accessed once the picnic area is open.

Went with our meetup group - Santa Fe Hiking Adventures. Beautiful day, nice breeze sunny and cool. Could not ask for nicer weather. We also found the cave. Very cool and mysterious !

Do not take this trail early in the year. I recently attempted the hike into the lake, and there was far too much snow. The trail seems really nice and fairly easy, but it's near impassable in the snow. I'd recommend waiting until June or later.

Great hike wish the waterfall was more but it is a desert.
