    This is an excellent trail with incredible panoramic views at the top -- but you have to work for it! It is pretty steep in some protions and super hot right now, so best in the early morning or late afternoon. Bring lots of water. It's one of our favorite hikes in the Santa Fe area :)

    Beautiful views, but the last part of the hike is uphill all the way. It's too hot in the middle of the day in summer- go early or late. Bring plenty of water including for dogs- there's none along the way. But the view at the top is of Santa Fe and all of north central New Mexico, and is beautiful.

    This was a relatively easy hike of a couple of hours that provided a nice view of the Santa Fe area. A well marked trail and the summit is a nice place for lunch.

    This is a great, somewhat challenging day/night hike that is positively gorgeous in the snow. St. John's College Search and Rescue use it for training sometimes, so if you see a bunch of college students that look WAY too prepared for a day hike then say hi! The view from the top is magnificient and you can see all of Santa Fe out to the surrounding peaks.
