Go through the natural entrance for sure! Don't cheat and use the elevator :) Bring a sweater!

Bar Canyon - Soledad Canyon

One of my favorite trails for an easy hike. I can usually complete in less than two hours, which includes a lot of dawdling and picture taking. If i'm pressed for time I go to the canyon and waterfall and don't follow the trail around to the south. A great hike for dogs and they are allowed off leash (if controllable).

Gila Cliff Dwellings Trail

As we drove through Silver City, NM, we made the two hour drive out to this park. I’ll admit, by the end of the day, I’m not certain the two hour drive is worth it. But if you love history, you should get out here. The city in the cliff is incredible, with so many small rooms and buildings, it’s easy to imagine what it was like to live there. The hike up isn’t bad, with plenty of spots to sit down if you need to. And the city is easy to access with a smooth hike back down to complete the loop. Worth visiting, definitely, just know it’s a long trip.

Attempted this trail hike to see the TWA crash site, but we never got to see the site (we got LOST!). We hiked for 9 miles total and what we saw was very beautiful; a 2nd attempt to do this hike is being planned.

I hiked this as a kid. I remember it was a very difficult hike, but so worth it when I got to the top.

Church Rock Trail

Amazing views. I took trail to left past the other rock monolith, down into canyon and back up. I kept wanting the trail to bring me up and back towards the church rock, but it seemed to then go off in the opposite direction. Once you get to a fence and a sign that says 'donated by youth of NM' or something like that. There is also a wooden constructed look out post type thing with a ladder.

First trail hiked utilizing All Trails app. Trail easy to follow, at a fast pace took 18 minutes to complete. Safe and fun, just the right demand for a beginning to hike.

This trail is very unique, with very interesting rock formations. Most of the 600 ft elevation climb occurs toward the end of the trail. Some areas of the climb can be challenging, but the panoramic view at the top is worth it.

Awesome little trail that winds through cactus and rare trees seldom seen in thus part of AZ in a lush green Valley. The trail hugs a little creek and there are several crossings. Great for walking the dogs. Just bring bug spray.
