We did this hike last weekend. It took us 3 attempts to finish it, and it was well worth it! The second half of it gets pretty steep and rocky, but the views, the stream and the overall experience were spectacular! Though to finish, but highly recommended!

Not a bad hike. All the cactus lining the trail are spooky lol. The views are tremendous. My 8 and 10 year old boys loved it.

Great trail. I consider it the most difficult on Sandia mountain. Can be difficult to know where the trail is at times. took my son yesterday and ended up going up wrong ravine this time. Recommend using Alltrails to help navigate which uses GPS so you can be sure to stay on trail. if you do want to do a trail that requires lots of hand and foot climbing go up left side of ravine instead. you will not get to plane crash but will climb a much more aggressive trail.

Nice short trail! Once you come upon the satanic looking rock there really isn't much to see.
