Michial M. Emery Bear Canyon Trailhead

This trail is great for mountain biking or beginners. The trail is wide and relatively flat with only slight elevation increases in the first 2miles. At the end of this trail you can hike up some pretty steep, unmarked, primitive trails which reveal wonderful views.

The lake had work being done on it, looks as if it was drained. Very low. The hike wasn't bad, we came across 5-6 bikers and 3 hikers. Didn't like this one as much as other trails in this area.

Beautiful green mountain with little streams going through it. About as different as you can get from any of the Franklin Mountain hikes.

Very nice trail will beautiful scenery. Water runs along most of the trail. My dogs loved running through it and getting wet. This trail is also used for horseback riding.

Great hike! Steady climb, but not strenuous. Just high altitude for this sea level gal!

Cienega Trail

Trailhead was a bit difficult to find for my first time hiking it. I was fooled by the "Cienega Nature Trail", but quickly realized it and corrected my course. It's apparent that it isn't as heavily trafficked as the west trails (La Luz, Pino, Embudito, etc) but still a fun hike. Leads to intersection of South Crest and Pino trails at the top.

Rift Valley Trail

Great views of the Sangre de Cristos. A lumbering long loop on the Mesa. There are no steep gains or losses but the trail is far from flat. Has several overlooks of the Rio Grande and a tributary. Minus one star because the beginning of the trail follows the highway for about 3 miles. I went out after a rain and it was slippery and muddy I assume there will be a lot of mountain bikers when the conditions are hard.

Manby Hot Springs

Very scenic springs. On an old wagon road. Also the site of the springs in "Easy Rider". Take Tune road all the way out to the Dobson House sign and stay left. About a half mile later the road will dead end into a parking lot (unless you have a high clearance vehicle). Anyhow this is where you want to park. Keep all valuables out of sight. This lot is notorious for break-ins.
