This is a beautiful trail. You can experience New Mexico's diversity all in one short 8 mile hike. From ponderosas, to amazing tall grass, and even a couple of patches of aspen, this trail has a little of everything. In the springtime; however, beware of some serious winds when coming around Elk Point to start along the crest. There is generally water along the length of the trail, but I would hesitate to call it lush. Also be ready to watch your step, there is a lot of horse traffic all around the loop. Not NM's best, but a good overnighter.
