    Wonderful trail! Well-maintained and easy to follow. Varied terrain makes longer hike interesting. Splendid in the fall. Time on the mesa is well worth it.

    Wonderful trail. Started at the west end of the Maloya Lake dam. Hiked early in the morning, saw deer, wild turkey and very fresh bear tracks, all before reaching the pass on Opportunity Trail. Lots of variety in wild flowers. The side hike climb to the Mesa is very short, although steep, but well worth the effort. I found the description of the hike in the trail guide to be very accurate. At 5.3 miles from the start, I reached the lake at the bridge that crosses Segerstrom Creek. Instead of following the 0.8 mile trail to the dam, I decided to hike around the north end of the lake. The Maloya Lake trail travels north on the west side of the lake to the Lake Dorothey area that is actually in Colorado. Hiked over to Lake Dorothey and then followed the road back into New Mexico and back to the dam. Total hike was 9.5 miles with detour to Lake Dorothey, 5 hours.

    Had a wonderful time on this hike. I'm sure it was even prettier when the leaves were changing, but we got there after most of the leaves were already off the trees, but still was an enjoyable hike.
