Excellent trail but thank the gods for AllTrails for showing me which fork to take! As others have said, the first part is poorly marked. Interesting to see the cactus and pine together.

All of the different trails in this area make it hard to decide which way to go. I had fun doubling back and doing loops. The area is ripe with ecology and geology. I could hit these trails 1000 times and still come away feeling enlightened.

Great trail. Lots of different trails merge off of this one so you need to keep an eye on the map.

Easy to moderate trail and it’d be great for trail running. Temp was low 50’s, sunny no wind and wound up shedding windbreaker. Great views of WNMU campus and if you go down the backside nice views of farming and ranching homes. We maintained an easy pace and took an hour and was about 2 miles. Nice hike to bring along your best friend too! Enjoy!

Gorgeous hiking but terrible markers! Come on, put up a couple trail signs or at least arrows indicating which trail is which.

I don’t know why the description says it is near Pinos Altos. It is actually within the city limits of Silver City. Trailheads are off city streets. This is a lovely trail system with fabulous views. You can do a thirty minute hike or a two hour hike depending on how you loop it. Lots of mining remnants to puzzle over. You won’t get lost because it is completely surrounded by streets and roads - just get high and you can figure out where you are. This is not a great place to hike in the heat of summer because there is minimal shade but otherwise anytime will do. Have a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen and water. Highly recommend!

Good choice for a day in the 80's. Hiked 2 miles up and 2 miles back from the pull off on NM 15. Bushwackers inc. Marilyn, Janet and Ralph. Saw a lizard, juvenile and mature horned toad, sumac, poison ivy and watercress, which I was cautioned not eat due to possible Beaver Fever.

I couldn't find the trail, it looked like all private property.

My Wife and I hiked this trail about 7 days ago and really enjoyed the views. Great inclines and plenty of locations to stop and see the vastness of this part of New Mexico. It was about 2 hours to the peak and what a clear day to see all around the area with more than 10 miles visibility.

This was a listed trail that has trail marker saying "public access through private property". This is not true as a jerk of a man said get off his property. Jim Aldel is his name.
