I didn't have the best experience hiking this trail. We hiked the La Luz trail and we decided to take the tram down. We forgot that the tram parking lot is far away from where we parked, the La Luz trail parking lot. We had this trail another 2.5 miles in 107 degree weather with hardly any water after already hiking the La Luz. If you're going to hike this trail, I wouldn't recommend doing it the same way that I did.

We made it to the point where there would only be 2.8 miles left and there was still a lot of snow. I recommend waiting till summer if you plan on going to the highest point. Still gorgeous the whole hike.

Fun, short trail. A good amount of scrambling so although it says dog friendly, it's not really.

The trail is generally in good shape, quite a bit of deadfall in the 2nd half. We took a few breaks going up, took us 4 hours to summit to the crest trail intersection. Downhill was about 2.5 hr. Definitely a strenuous hike, but the 100s of waterfalls and the view at the summit were well worth it.

This is a really fun trail. I really wouldnt say its a difficult trail either. Good scenery on the way up, starts in desert shrubbery and then moves up to spruce and fir trees. Only knock i can say against it is that at the top of the trail you really dont have good views because you are in the saddle between two peaks. It does connect to another trail that runs along the crest but i didnt have time to hike that trail to see if it actually runs to one of the neighboring peaks. I hiked this trail in march and there was still sections that were iced over near the top.

Lots of big,slick rocks

Fun trail for a back by noon hike. Well maintained trail, good views and plenty of nice shady spots to take a break from the sun. Springs and creek were flowing pretty good for a high desert trail.

This is one of my favorite hiking trails! It's convenient to town, groomed and the perfect distance for a quick workout.

Went for a bike ride here. It was beautiful however I probably wouldn't recommend it for biking. The trail wasn't kept up, very difficult incline, and a moderatly difficult decent. There is no way to get bikes to the waterfall however we still went up and it was worth the climb. Definitley would recommend only hiking this.

Hands down, one of the most rewarding hikes in the Sandia mountain range. In 45 minutes you have access to stunning views. The maps on the app are wrong, but the trail is clearly marked. The only thing this trail is missing is water, hence 4 stars.

Poor trail markings, tons of downed trees.

Poorly marked.

Lots of fun!! Not hard but a bit challenging. Many trails hear to choose from.
