Trails were really well kept. Incline wasn't too intense, but definitely got me working. Alos had great views. My only complaint was that the trail ended and split into other trails when I was expecting a clearing. Overall one of my favorite trails in ABQ.

So hard does not begin to describe the end of this trail. All is fine while you are near the creeks, then you start the real trek up and it is really up. My son (9), daughter (7), wife and I made it this past Saturday. Weather was perfect. Started just after 9 and finished about 4. Made it all the way to the crash site. I will say the view were not as good as other trails, La Luz or Pino, but there was plenty of shade. Big note watch for the right turn you need to make. IT is marked by other hikers but hard to see. You actually go up out of the creek bed. There is a glove in the tree along with some rock markers. The last half mile before the wreck is a nightmare. But you are so close you are pushed to finish. Walking sticks are highly advised, we did not bring any, but found some along the trail.

The trails leading to the north and south peaks are closed for restoration until further notice. Still a beautiful hike, just disappointing not being able to get to the top of every volcano.

Great hike. Beautiful views, excellent scenery and a great work out. Hike was definitely a challenge, but we'll worth it. However, there are a ton of forks and trails leading different directions with no signs or directing signals. Overall I definitely enjoyed this hike.

Nice. Pretty. Lots of traffic but they are usually very nice. Trails can be narrow.
