Best scenic hike in NM. The colors in the landscape are unreal! Every turn reveals something new. No better way to show the changing landscapes of our beautiful state.

This is a mesa walking trail. The trial is poorly marked in some places, although, our all trails maps kept us on track . There is definitely some beautiful landscape and a few hoodoos too :-) we enjoyed our time here and took many beautiful pics too .

Trails are easy to access by taking 550 to Cabezon Road. However, a sign said the portion of the road through the Zia Pueblo will be closed May 1. Though the road was washboarded and a little muddy in places, we had no trouble in our AWD SUV. The scenery is very pretty. It is more of an open space than a trail, so you can explore whatever looks interesting to you. Lots of cattle. Also, unfortunately, tons of people shooting. We went on a Sunday and didn't hear gunfire until about noon, but it was constant after that. Also, shooters are extremely disrespectful of the land. Shell casings are everywhere along with a disgusting amount of beer cans/bottles and litter near the areas with shells. Hard to feel safe, especially with a dog, in an area with so much gunfire and alcohol.

The "trail" we took was amazing and totally worth the boulder crawl! The trail is not clearly marked and the land is an atv/ dirt bike area. The flyer at the information post advertised a dirt bike trial tournament, so there were a lot of crisscrossing well worn trails that lead to this confusion. SO instead of going to the right to the actual trail we went left and found beautiful canyons. Stay away from the dried river bed it is a breeding ground of aggressive mosquitoes. The long walk to the trail head is an uphill hike on very loose sand.

The trail wasn't marked well. The canyon was awesome.

I've never run across anyone out there. I usually go during the week and in the winter months. One of the things I like best about the area is the ability to go wander the slots and off trail areas.

Nice area but it is a motorized trIAls (not a trIAls area) so there was about 60 motorcycles out there buzzing around when I was out there Sunday
