This is one of the most scenic places you will ever see in this region. My wife is not an avid hiker like myself, but she really enjoyed this trail with the amazing views and shaded areas. The trail isn't too difficult, but you will be hiking half the trail up the Organ Needle mountain range area with the halfway point at about 6800 ft elevation.

this trail took about 4 1/2 hours from the parking lot & back which required some running downhill. I run downhill because it is easier on my knees & I seem to "slip" less. My wife says I am part mountain goat

Coming from an area where the elevation is about 500 above sea level this trail was difficult, challenging & fun. The farther in you get the steeper the inclines become. There is one spot 1/4 - 1/2 mile before the wreckage (which I had no idea was there) that requires a little scrambling & GOOD DEXTERITY. My wife stopped here as she is a little less sure footed & KNOWS HERSELF well enough to say 'not gonna do it" no shame in being smart. Having said that if you forge ahead the wreckage is strewn through the narrow path (about 30' wide) It makes you stop & take pause... I hiked another 1/2 - 3/4 mile past to the rock face not sure I made the end. We encountered a small group of people that brought their dogs WOULDN'T RECOMMEND it.

Pretty hike, but extremely crowded trail. Not sure if we'd do it again due to how many people were out there.

If your dog loves water, they will love this hike. There are many little water crossings which makes for nice splashing. I recommend spending time around the creek.

Great trail! Almost the entire trail runs along a stream until you begin to zig-zag your way out of the canyon through a few switchbacks towards the top. It is a very tough hike if you're not used to the altitude. The trail is a steady incline nearly the whole way until you reach the top. But once there, there are lots of nice places to rest and have lunch among the trees with great views! Also at the top Junction point there is a no trail peak worth the climb.

If you decide to go all the way up to the Crest Trail, this trail is very difficult. First 1 hour is very easy but as you keep on going further, it becomes steep and tough. There are alot of fallen rees, which you have to jump/crawl and while coming down, be careful as there are some spots with loose gravel. Being from San Antonio, where trails are extremely easy, this was my first hiking in Albuquerque and i found it very challenging trail. So, if you are a beginner or just moved from a place with easy trails, try not to conquer this trail in first attempt. Well, the views were awesome and this was the most natural trail i have ever been to. It gets little chillier towards the top during to cold wind gusts, so be prepared. And carry plenty of gatorade/energy drinks and water.
