Incredibly, I had this ascent all to myself on a Saturday and didn't see another soul until the decent! About a foot of snow on the summit plateau. The views from the overlook just on the other side of the highpoint are breathtaking! Just me and Logan.
You can see Jicarita, Chimayosos, and North Truchas from the cliffs at the top. Nice views! Heard some rockfall in the canyon.
The trail is mostly a pile of loose rocks, and therefore completely un-runnable, but the view is well worth the drive and hike. Lots of big, several-hundred-foot cliffs, too, though I can't find much info about route development. Some of the south-facing rock, especially near the top of the switchbacks, looks pretty decent.
Awesome hike, awesome cliffs and huge drop off from the top. I would recommend it to all
Great views from the summit plateau. Great scenery on the way up with big walls surrounding the trail. Could not locate the Hermit's Cave.
Drove up from ABQ with my hungover friend, Ryan. We picked up Nizhoni on the way and had a splendid day. The autumn leaves were in full color, the sky was clear, and not a lick of wind hit our faces. The best part was the napping at the summit.
Home sweet home. I love this peak...
Great climb with beautiful views. I highly recommend it.
I climbed the Peak a few times while living in Vegas. It's less than two hours up. The view is stunning. We could see one of the houses we lived in from the summit.
There is plenty of space for camping at the summit if you don't mind lightening.
Red Dawn was filmed in Vegas, and you can see the Peak several times during the movie. Patrick Swayze has a place on the way up to the mountain.
Buggy at the top, but all worth it for the views. West side of summit best.
Don't remember much about it . Seem to remember
a cross at the top. That was nice.
This is a great hike for kids, scouts, or anyone. What a view!
