Nice trail. I was hiking with a toddler and everyone else I saw were mountain biking. The terrain is beautiful and it isn't too touch to hike, however there is a lot of glass on the trail. Mountain bikers might not see all the glass, but hikers with children just be aware. There are quit e a few shady spots to stop and rest with kids.

The trail is pretty flat and wide for the most part. I went with a toddler and 2 dogs. The dogs had shade once in a while by some pretty large bushes, but the trail is mostly in the sun. There are a couple dog poop bag stations before getting on the trail which is convenient. For people hiking with kids, the trail is mostly lined with cactus and yucca plants. I also noticed my ankles were covered in stickers when I got back to the car... thank goodness for my hiking socks! I saw a girl running in knee high socks which is probably a good choice. Overall it was a beautiful, well maintained trail... just be aware of how close cactus etc. are to the trail.

It is an absolute MUST for people to visit this site, its a World Heritage Site, which as history would inform most of mankind essentially has ties to the area. Its wonderful! I wish that I had more time to explore and fully intend on another visit. Don't let the negative comments about the crummy road to the site discourage you (provided it is miserable washboard and takes about 30 minutes to drive 15 miles) Its important to remember to make the best, its been two years since I was there and my 4 year old still remembers the drive in and LOVES to watch the silly videos we made while driving to the site

My son and I hiked nearly to the top of one of the petroglyph sites about two years ago (at the time he'd just turned 3) He was such a champ!! We really enjoyed ourselves, Great view too

Go for the glyphs not the hike. Take your cell phone and listen to the information on the history of the place. Very interesting.

This was a very difficult hike for me and my friend. We do some hiking but this was pretty intense. The trail is well marked but is very rocky. the part on the hardest was the incline going up to the peak. I was disappointed I couldn't make it all the way up because we were moving so slow, I've always wanted to do that hike and we'll have to try again sometime. This is such a great forest spot and the campsite at the base of the trail is so beautiful. I cannot recommend this enough to those of you wanting to do a extreme hiking challenge.

Great hike for kids. Very educational. There are lots of steps and ladders which my kids enjoyed a lot, but it's not so long that they're overwhelmed.

My wife and 9 month old daughter did this last weekend. Great hike, beautiful view and worth it! Get there early we started at 7am and had the trail to ourselves most of the way. Coming down around 10 was person after person, and the parking lot was packed. The Ranger opens the station lookout at around 9, its worth seeing and talking with him as well.

DSNA - Fillmore Canyon Trail.

Easily accessed from the northeast side of the loop trail right by the visitors center. I went in early June and with the lack of rainfall this season the canyon was almost completely dry. Still a decent hike although the best time to visit the dripping springs area would be after some heavy rains. At the end of the canyon the trail continues to Organ Needle Peak.

Catching up on my posting of trails completed. I did this trail with my good friends in ABQ. This is an awesome place. I took many photos but they are too similar with what is already on AllTrails.
