A nice short climb  Sucess!

This is a nice, short, steep hike. Good trail to the top. A great hike to prep for bigger mountains.

Mi first peak

This was the first peak I ever climbed, c.1974 when I was a teenager living in my home town of Santi-Flush. Free-solo via the off-trail W Face Direttissema.

Had fun  Sucess!

Visiting Santa Fe for the week, hiked up this peak one morning, enjoyed it very much. Lots of people, including walking their dogs. One dog got away from his owner and came running at me, barking and snarling. But fortunately he stopped feet from me and ran back to his owner.

Beautiful Day  Sucess!

Started at St. John's College. The wildflowers were all in bloom...and everywhere! I enjoyed the hike in the lower portions through the Pinyon-Juniper woodlands. I also enjoyed the summit ridge and the views to the west (Jemez Mountains) and southwest (Sandias). Great little hike. I made it up in 1 hr 10 min, and down in 55 min.

Standard route from St John's College  Sucess!

We enjoyed fantastic weather on this nice little mountain. Plenty of water for the dogs in the stream lower down (thanks to ample recent rains). Loved the views from the top! Summit area is a great place for lunch.

several hikes

I used to hike this trail often when I lived in New Mexico and Santa Fe.
July 2017 returned to visit Santa Fe and hiked it again. New trails, more people and still great views.
