My wife and I ran this trail this morning and we had a blast. Tricky if you a first time trail runner. Well marked and there were only a few fellow humans out there with us. There was a little snow as we approached the La Luz trail.

Great hike! The high altitude makes the last bit of it difficult but it’s worth it.

This is a great trail. Great scenery and the warm springs are really nice at the end. I used the map on the app and had no problem following the trail or finding the springs. My mistake was not bringing a swimsuit and towel. Highly recommended!!

It’s a nice walk and the petroglyphs are easy to see. The first 1/2 mile is littered with dog droppings. That doesn’t reflect well on the Albuquerque residents who are not following the posted rules. When I’m on a hike I’m really not wanting to focus on avoiding stepping on dog shit.

A fabulous place. Check for guided tours when you get there. I checked on line and they looked sold out but was able to book one when I arrived. Walked down and took the elevator out. Walking down is highly recommended as it gives one an idea of how big it really is, how deep it is and how early explorers really encountered it. Very easy walk down. Highly recommended!!

Incredibly unique and enjoyable trail. Don’t give up part way through. Go all the way to the views at the end! In my top 3 trails ever!

the stairs at the switchback get slippery. beware.

Loved walking this trail, amazing sights and breathtaking views!!

Breathtaking views!

Great hike!

It's almost unreal how big this cave is. Best cave I've ever been too.

Pools were kinda warm and the area was really trashed. Lot of broken glass, nasty clothing, dirty diapers and even a bag of dog poo in the lower pool. Pretty gross overall...

First time hiking this trail and absolutely loved it! Climbed out into the river to enjoy the sound of the water.

Nice, casual, easy hike. Great views of the Organ Mountains. We had a fun day with friends and their two young kids on this hike.

Loved it!

This was SUCH an amazing hike! It is exceptionally difficult- we made it 2.5 in, through the second set of switchbacks! Absolutely GORGEOUS.

Bring LOADS of water, maybe some snacks.

We will be going back!

By the way, bring 5 dollars cash, and be prepared for an all-day experience!

this trail has it all. dramatic views , caves, ancient history and diverse floral. amazing!!

Beautiful views, even better after a rain shower!

This is a great hike. You pay $5 for a day pass unless you have the state park pass. You can park at the visitor center and do the loop that will take you around the base of mountain and come out by campground. I just did the small loop back to make it a little longer. It ended up being about 2.4 miles. We then drove over to Spring Canyon which is also in that park. It’s about a mile up. It’s a pretty good incline and you might even see some Ibex while hiking. I’m definitely going to go back and do it again.

This is a great spot for a quick walk or a long walk and is good for all ability levels. I’m an advanced hiker but still enjoyed the views and activity. The petroglyphs have been beautiful preserved, it’s wonderfully that people have really respected them and left them as they found them.
Go check it out and please, continue to be kind to the amazing, historical petroglyphs.
