Nice trail but long if you do Argentina Canyon to Crest Trail to Little Bonito and Big Bonito back down to trailhead. I think we figured out it was almost 7 miles total and the trail guide says over 1300 ft. of elevation change. (Didn’t seem quite that steep to us as the elevation change is gradual.) Beautiful views at the top of Argentina Canyon Trail, in both directions.
One plus is that much of it is shady, and also the trail down goes along the creek for part of the way up and down.
Don’t turn back when driving to the trailhead; part of the road is just a bit rough but doable. And you’ll travel through areas impacted by the large 2012 fire; however, not much of the trail itself has burned out areas.
Very pretty scenery and fun trail to hike!
