The Volcanoes Trail

Easy hike, pretty views. Conveniently close to Albuquerque. The only downside was the amount of people on the trail at the time. We went when it was 60 degrees on a random weekend in January and there were a TON of people there. Most were nice and friendly, but there were a handful of rude and loud groups who would leave litter, climb up into the volcano (which were closed off for trail renovation with very clearly marked signs), and play music very loudly. Aside from that, it was well worth the short drive there and a nice way to spend a few hours.

Did this in late January. The snow was packed and at times the trail was muddy. We did about 1/2 of it before we decided a fall wasn't worth the risk and turned around. Beautiful and quiet. I want to finish it later in the year.

Good winter hike as the trail was hard packed to about the 3.2 mile point. Beyond that it was slow going with soft snow where I sunk up to my thighs many times. I was able to make it to the last switchback turn approx 0.25 mile from the crest trail intersection, however turned back due to the soft snow and fear of running out of daylight on the way back down.

Great winter hike. I was able to make it to the 3 Gun Spring Trail intersection however the snow made it slow going.
