The Gila is Sooo nice, hot springs, camping, river crossings, canyons, wildlife.

Very nice area need to us grudging grave trail to access west fork many river crossings and a cliff dwelling

Very nice hike, at this time-west fork trail is only accessible by this route. Look for cave dwelling at about mile 3, many river crossings and wildlife, basically level terrain

This was a great trail. I took my 10 year old and packed a lunch. It took us about 5.5 hours because we had several rest breaks, but we made it! My Garmin watch tracked about 6.5 miles. I loved the variety of scenery in the first mile, before we started the climb up. We took the "steep path" and it was fine, no scrambles.

I parked my RV for free for several hours in the lot near the Post Office. I ran around the various park facilities and encountered virtually no traffic. The Church Trail is awesome for hiking but might be rough for jogging. It's best if you stay down around the campgrounds and museum/offices for jogging/running. AllTrails indicates this is a state park. It is NOT a state park. It's a local park ran by the Gallup Parks and Rec.

Trail from the pass becomes difficult to the Peak. It is easy to lose trail on your way down, just maintain the cairns you followed up and you should be fine on your way back to the pass. Awesome trail! Views are tremendously beautiful!

Nice views for an easy hike. Kept within view of the highway, which was a bummer. The rock and plant diversity was very fascinating for native Kansas though!

The incline was hard for some in my hiking group. However, the views were spectacular, especially for a short trail.

My girlfriend and I hiked this trail mid-day in a Friday. Did not encounter anyone. The trail wasn’t to bad to hike and had great views, Overlooking the forest and within. We came across plenty on wild life and was able to hear an elk close by but did not see it. I recommend this trail if you are in the area. But it can be difficult if you’re not in decent shape.

a nice hike, a challenge but not too much of a challenge.
