Canyon was neat, the rest of the trail was unnecessary.

Not a bad hike, lots of sand..was like 4 miles of beach walk. Beginning was cool in the canyon

on San Ysidro Trails

Great place

Nice quick hike

Very awesome hike for an afternoon in Albuquerque! Can be a little tricky with larger rocks towards the last bit of the hike, but still very doable. Our 2 1/2 month old corgi puppy did the majority of this hike with ease.

Spectacular walk through canyon viewing rock walls and climbers. Then into broad open arroyo till reaching thr Rio Grande. Beautiful the entire way.

Didn't feel like a moderate difficulty but more like an easy difficulty.

Beautiful Hike! It is definitely in the top two in the Organs. Just as enjoyable as the Needle but not as hard. The scenery is magnificent and the view of Needle is incredible.

I hiked parts of this trail on my 1st trip to Philmont. We were dropped at the Kit Carson Museum and stopped by Zastrow for some duct tape ball, and then hiked to the Rayado River Camp.

I went well the 1.9 miles that’s shown for the trail. Well marked and then you are on your own scrambling up the rocks in what is water flow track from the Sandia’s.

My beagles and I visit the canyon at least twice a month, all seasons. Exiting the canyon, crossing the boulder fields opens to a sandy arroyo which ends at the river. Dogs run free. Take a break in the junipers. Stop, look, and explore. Four easy hours in and out.

Perfect hike for my dog and I! Super easy and flat, great to run sprints or meander along - my dog loves to swim so getting to the river was big fun! This would be a great hike to take visiting friends who aren’t big hikers or used to the elevation - I don’t mind the drive in at all, drive fast and it’s a lot of fun!

This trail is great iin the beginning but then your off going down rocks and a stream bed, mot sure if that was the down part of the trail. I also think it is longer than 3.1 miles

Very beautiful trail!

Nice hike in Aguirre Springs nra, no real trail from pine tree loop to Indian hollow, just hike down into to arroyo, better to start from pine tree loop.

Great trail, route is easy to follow. Some steep parts that get fairly technical. American flag at the summit provides a good photo opportunity. Be aware that their is cartel and illegal border crossing activity in this area.
