This trail definitely deserves the hard rating, but the views, even without the wreckage, are absolutely worth it. The wreck was very surreal and interesting. We took lots of water and snack breaks and made a day out of it. I think think is my new favorite trail! I definitely recommend it!

Nice trail, wide and easily hiked, Definitely not a difficult trail, my watch clocked it at 8 miles total round trip. I think a lot of horse traffic goes on trail.
A bit muddy but not too bad, very well maintained considering where it is. A bit of a drive from 518 but fun.

Great views of aspens and meadows about a five hour out and back hike at a leisurely pace

Began with the intention of completing the McCauley Warm Springs trail. However, Trail 137 connects up to the Jemez Falls trail, as part of the East Fork Trail, making this about 8+ miles with the added bonus of viewing the falls. I agree with the other commentators that the MWS trail could be better marked... Parking for day-use is $5. Camping is also an option for the same ppd.
So, to add on to the MWS hike from Battleship rock, simply continue on the path after the quaint warm springs and climb upward to arrive at the Jemez Falls trail-head and picnic area.
Plenty of sun-dappled shade, lovely vistas, mountain breezes, and a light afternoon sprinkle.

Worth seeing, although a bit crowded on a Saturday. I suggest arriving early or/and completing on a weekday. I arrived just in time to watch a long line of cars build as I waited for entry as this is 1-out/1-in due to lack of available parking.

Great hike but if hesitate to rate this trail Moderate. The final mile is steep and the trail is loose, not packed. Otherwise, great views, cool breeze and we'll worth the trip.

Not for beginners. Lots of loose rocks, downed trees, and a steady incline the entire way up and down. We found it helpful to have a map or use the map in this app as it was sometimes confusing if we were on the real trail or not.
As someone who typically lives around 200ft above sea-level, the altitude definitely made the hike more of a challenge as well.
We brought our packs and slept overnight on the plateau. The views from the top made the hard hike well worth it. Amazing views! Pack a jacket though as the wind gets intense through the night.
Well worth the adventure.

Excellent hike, combining uphill and downhill equally. About 385' elevation...

Great hike! You can see the Valle Grande once on top of the mountain. Towards the top my girlfriend and I saw elk.
