CharlieRussellShort Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 20, 2017


Hiked it from The Water Canyon Trailhead (google that) by the CDT. Easy pace made it up in less than an hour. Return trip <30 minutes. Trail is in good condition and very easily followed though there are no markers directing you to the summit per se. subjective distance is less than 1 mile. Great views from the summit, but the hike is mainly in forest right to the summit.

Took the shorter trail to the top from the saddle at the top of FS453 in between La Mosca overlook and Mount Taylor. Only about .75 mile one way. So quick up and back down but then drove FS239 all the way from Mount Taylor northeast to SAN Luis and US550.

Loved this mountain, this is a great hike to share with your dogs. Spent over an hour on top - ate lunch, did yoga, etc. great chat with some local folks from Acoma.

The camping here is so quiet and serene. We drive just a bit past the trailhead to camp and never saw another vehicle the entire rest of the weekend!

Headed up the wrong FR 193, make sure you make the turn all the way to where the pavement ends. Regardless, left Gooseberry trailhead at 10:30 A.M., summited at noon. Beautiful and quiet hike, nothing too strenuous but the second half is a decent work out. Terrific views, ran into some guy on his 4 wheel drive up there.

I'm pretty slow ... at the Gooseberry TH @ 0700, on top by 1030.

Chased off the peak by dark clouds, and lots of lightning/thunder that hastened my descent to treeline. But what can one expect in July in New Mexico?

Took the Gooseberry route this morning. An enjoyable hike, nothing to add to previous reports except that dirt road to trailhead is barely passable by passenger car. I made it in my Corolla but would not try it again.

Date Climbed: Jun 17, 2012
Started at 1PM at the Gooseberry trail head. I reached the summit about 2:30 PM. Note I got off the trail and came up the west ridge of Mount Taylor. This shortened the trip considerably. Stayed at the top for a while to enjoy the sunshine before heading to La Mosca lookout. To get back I reversed my trip heading back over Mount Taylor.

The trail is very well taken care of and I enjoyed the trip thoroughly.

Date Climbed: Oct 8, 2011


Went up after some fresh snow on Saturday morning. It's really a beautiful hike, especially with the snowfall and views of snow capped mountains to the East. With how gorgeous it was, I was kind of surprised that I was the only person on the trail.

Beautiful hike via Gooseberry, though the views were hazy from controlled burns. It was our unborn kid's first 11-er!

Prettier than expected hike with great views at the top. Had to share the trail with some stubborn cows.
