Beautiful trail since you can see Church Rock and the Pyramid most of the way up and down. I didn’t make it all the way to top since needed to get back to a meeting (lunch time outing). Got to the fence gate where the elevation started to take off.

It was a nice hike but the spring was kind of a disappointment. Moss every where and if you walk down the right side of the spring, at least 20 spiders will start running with every step. In the water there were minnows which made us not want to get in. We decided to do the “extra 2 mile hike to the falls.” But after another 30 minutes of walking we weren’t sure if we were in the right trail, and you can get to the falls much easier by driving around.

I would recommend this trail to anyone of any skill level. While strollers wouldn't be advisable, no reason why kids couldn't go on the trail. The path is Walmart and primary composition is decomposed granite, which drains quite effectively. Didn't encounter any mud, which is a Plus. It is advisable to keep a weather eye out as the mountain will ring any moisture out of the clouds. The trail does cross quite a few arroyos and it would not be good to be caught in one during a Flash flood. Very enjoyable hike.

Very manageable in 2 hours and very rewarding views considering the moderate difficulty and convenient location.

Depends on what you are in for. If you want an off trail day, you will like this one. If not, you may not. I started off by going as far up the Indian Hollow Trail I could make it due to snow. On the way back to the trailhead, I decided to try to find he connector going to Pine Tree Loop. Without having the GPS and trail maps on my watch, I wouldn’t have even found the connector off the Indian Hollow trail. Once I found it I navigated a bit using my watch up the creekbed. It started to get overgrown, so I turned around. On another day I probably would have loved this route and the effort to complete the loop. I just wasn’t feeling it on this day.

Good trail. I just found it hard to follow and some it was overgrown. To be honest though, if I made it to the end that might of changed my opinion if it ended with a good view. I stopped about 1/2 mile short due to snow.

Beautiful loop with a decent amount of climb, but can be done sort of fast. Part of it runs on near the base of the jagged peaks of the Organ Mountains.

I really enjoyed this trail. Nice and easy to the pass. From there it gets a bit loose and steep to the peak, which is not always the best defined trail, but easy enough to see. While going up there is actually a false summit that you have to go over to reach the true summit. From the top you get excellent views of Las Cruces, White Sands, and all the jagged peaks of the Organ Mountain Range.

This was a really fun stop! Obviously, it’s neat to see where all four states meet, but what we really enjoyed was the Dancing Horse Trail right by the monument. It’s a really simple walk up to the top of these rocks, that offers a spectacular view of the monument, the San Juan River, and all four states. If you’re going to be stopping at Four Corners, I highly recommend this simple trail and the view that meets you at the top.

Beautiful perfect morning hike, but be wary of mountain lion on trail.

I love this trail, but be aware that a mountain lion (or maybe two) has been sighted in the area. A woman lost her dog and they’re pretty certain that the lion got him.

This is a great trail, but I would definitely rank it strenuous. Atalaya is steep by any standard and you’re adding a second peak.

I’d call this one an easy to slightly moderate trail. Some loose rocks, but for the most part a beaten path. You cross a couple creek beds. The end of the trail is beautiful with the majestic juniper tree climbing high into the clouds. What an amazing sight. Well shaded through 80% of the trail. Pay attention to the trail signs as a couple other trails cross paths with the big tree trail. I recommend for beginners, sightseers, photographers and juniper tree lovers.

Beautiful views of 5 states from the crater rim. A herd of mule deer were on the crater while we were hiking. Short loop but steep incline.

Had a great time hiking this trail. It was a bit muddy but it was expected considering the late spring snow run off. I completed the 2 mile hike with my 4 year toddler who had a blast. Highly recommend it!

We could only go half way for the weather but it was still awesome

Beautiful. Climb the ladders its worth it.

Trail is in good condition today; mostly dry. Its pretty darn steep going up from the trailhead to the crest trail but the view is worth it!

Note to self: counter clockwise means starting to your right! We started the hike thinking we were very intelligent by going left, like everyone suggested on the reviews. The views are actually nice, but after finishing the hike, we realized how dumb we were. This is a great hike to do as a family, with great views and a great breeze. Will definitely do it again!

Nice trail with great views, especially at the top. Muddy and icy in places, but overall a very enjoyable hike on a beautiful day.

Great hike. Nice workout

had great difficulty finding the trail. was a great adventure in the end.

Fantastic trail. We had great luck with the weather. Didn’t see a single soul the whole day. There was snow in clusters along the trail but nothing good hiking boots can’t handle. The Little Bonito portion of the loop was pretty muddy but still beautiful. I strongly recommend going counter clockwise up Argentina peak trail and down little bonito, or you might have muddy feet the whole way up (or wet feet if you don’t have proper boots). Several creek crossing on the little bonito portion. Always found a way across without getting wet, some crossings were more challenging than others as the stream was full from snow melt. Thanks Mother Nature.

Make sure to turn around during the first half of the walk or you will miss some beautiful views!! Watch where you step because there is quite a bit of horse droppings. Otherwise, a gorgeous light hike.

I'm not a hiker... Not used to altitude but this hike was certainly worth the effort it took me to climb.
It is so beautiful up among the pines. I would do it again once I recover!

Great trail. Very strenuous uphill climb through the trees, but very enjoyable. Lots of snow—snowshoes were a must today.

Visited this trail in mid March. Coming in from Silver City along 15, we parked on the left side of 15, between little cherry Creek Lane and little cherry Creek Ranch (sign posted). The trail followed the Creek for the most part and we had to cross over the water many times. There was a fair bit of snow still, and we lost the trail maybe 2.5 miles in and just came back on the dirt road. Nice, pretty trail even though we went off trail by accident. wear waterproof shoes.
