Great hike! Went after a fresh snow and the views and scenery were magical. Hiked with an 8 year old and was very do-able for both of us. Views from the top were awesome.

pretty boring, so many other things to do and see in New Mexico. No place to really walk your dog because it's bird Sanctuary which I couldn't see and they close off where I want to go (which is off the beaten path)
I won't be going back, I prefer to be able to walk where I want and hike with my dogs without fear of them looking at a bird

Great trail. Easy to navigate. A few icy/slippery spots.

Nice trail close to the city centre, though this time of year hard packed snow and ice is prevalent which slows you down.

Beautiful hike, though easy to get off trail at times.

**Found a pair of bifocal glasses on the trail in case anyone is looking please comment

There is no access to this trail. The trailhead seems to be off the side of the road. It is fenced off with a locked gate. I saw a car parked there on the shoulder of the road, but it seemed very difficult to climb over the gate and I wasn't about to do that.

Had a great hike, even went a ways to the peak since we were there. Great views and poodle had a great time.

Great little hike! Was snow packed in spots and got a little slippery, but still made it! Dogs loved it too!

Stunning hike!! Lots of snow but trail had been walked on enough to where it was easy to follow. Signs along trail that also make it very easy to navigate. Ice over the streams that mingle with the trail but the ice was so thick it wasn't an issue at all. The waterfalls were frozen. Words can't describe the beauty!

Enjoyed this hike very much! Very few people! Hiked up to Gomez peak while doing the loops, great views from the top!

Sweet out and back with great views! Lovely little hike in the snow.

Epic views from the switchbacks and lovely river spot at the bottom of the trail. Highly recommend continuing on to the petroglyphs- they]re worth a look.

Very scenic loop thru the woods. Trail bit tough to follow with couple inches of snow on the trail. Would give 5 stars if the trail was better marked with blazes or signs. Be sure to follow the trail on the app as it's easy to take a wrong turn in a couple of spots.

My wife and I hiked about 3/4ths before we turned around due to darkness. Nice hike through St. John’s College and the woods. We did get high to see a nice overlook. Definitely would hike again.

A short, easy trail with some terrific views of the Bosque and the surrounding area. We’ve hiked it twice already and have thoroughly enjoyed it. Highly recommended for those who want to take an easy effortless hike without taking too much time.

Nice way to travel from southern parts of town towards downtown, however I frequently get flat tires from the little goat heads (barbed seeds) that come from the vegetation near the arroyo at the lower portion of this trail.

This one will get your heart pumping. Views all along the trail are lovely. I loved sitting on the rock outcrops for short scenery breaks on the way up.

Great trail for a quick walk in nature. One of the easier hikes near Santa Fe.

So peaceful in the snow. Didn’t pass a single other person until I got almost back to my car. Lovely hike to get a little exercise and some fresh air.

Really nice loop trail through the foothills. So peaceful in the snow.

Easy, great lunch spot if you’re looking for a quick stop off the side of the road! Kid friendly!

Strenuous at the end, if you’re afraid of heights don’t do this. The trail basically scours a cliff. It leads up to a very difficult and narrow rock scramble, but the view is worth it!

trail running

Went out with the intention of running today having already done so back in August. Heavy snow the last 2 weeks completely changes everything.

Turned into a strenuous hike to the top and a nice steady jog to the bottom

Beautiful at every point! Definitely will be back

Excellent views and flora. Usually water at all the named Springs, and primitive campsites can be found throughout.

Great trail for a casual weekend backpacking trip. Water available when you need it, and only the final ascent of Turkey Canyon is steep enough to make you notice. Best views outside of the Gila once you're on the Crest Trail (25). Can be windy up there, however. Aspen Canyon on the descent is beautiful, and there's fresh water in Bonito Creek when you are on the homestretch.

One mighty bitch of a mountain, look for hidden gold and old battleships NMT used to shoot rounds at.

Great for mountain biking down

Kind of fucking hard. That said I’m glad I made it to the top and I’m glad I made it to the bottom. Great views from the top and Minnie great views on the way. That said I’m glad I made it back. You don’t think

Was a bit icey yesterday but still so beautiful and a nice hike :)
