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.

Elena Gallegos: Cottonwood Springs - Nature Trail

We didn't do the whole trail--our main interest was the novelty of water in that area! Very easy trail but fairly busy (most trails at Elena Gallegos are). The blind at the pond was wonderful. Watched a piñon jay flying around and saw several frogs (also a novelty!). One frog ate a tadpole. Very interesting to see.

In September 2014 I hiked with a friend seeking the TWA Crashsite.. One of the victims of the crash was the father of a friend of ours and we wanted to go to the site to pray and perhaps share with our friend about our visit. We spent nearllhy ;8 hours, two older gulys, both in our 60s, climbing up rocky surfaces, sliding down others, ... we lost the trail at the "river bed" and never found it aain. Aftdr much climbing, even with our gps on our phones, we had to abandon our quest after more than 4 hours...unless we wanted to spend the night on the mountain. We will try again this September. Hopefully we will be successful. I welcome any suggestions. My email: padrecito60@gmail.com.
Thank you...

Attempted this trail hike to see the TWA crash site, but we never got to see the site (we got LOST!). We hiked for 9 miles total and what we saw was very beautiful; a 2nd attempt to do this hike is being planned.

Pino Trail

Upper parts are snow/ice packed right now, I manged fine with my running shoes but yak tracks would have been nice! Lots of dead and fallen trees so keep your eyes open. Snow in upper parts (for now) for dog hydration, streams are not running. Pretty chilly winds still so bring warm clothes to put on. Crowded at the bottom and some unfriendly unleashed dogs (annoying) but once the going gets a little tough people thin out. No place for cover in event of lightening storm except High Finance so leave early during the monsoons. I can't wait for the Spring when the flowers and butterflies come out, that is the Pino's finest time!
