    Very dangerous trail. Loose dirt and loose rocks all the way. Also very steep. Not at all what we expected. Was looking for the circumference trail but apparently you must endure the steep dangerous and very slippery trail before you get to the circumference. Did not enjoy this at all

    Nice day and hike. Not all that difficult 2.8 mi. I would turn around at the gate to Cerro Colorados instead of walking the road.

    Revised Directions to trail head: After the road turns to dirt, go 3.8 miles, take left fork down towards the river. Go about 2.5 miles, look for BLM sign marking Cabezon recreation area, immediately take a left (east) and follow to trail head.

    The trail is well marked and leads to the south-southeast side of Cabezon. Once on the SE side, there are two distinct routes to the top. The first option leads you up a steep scree slope to a fissure. Follow carins. The second option is to keep following the main trail for about .25 - .5 miles, which then turns north to the base of the cliff area. Follow carins.
