The trails were fun for cross country skiing and the views were great. Staff was friendly and the rental skis were adequate. It's worth a visit if you are in the area or want a nice day trip from Santa Fe or Albuquerque.

My friend and I went for the Christmas night luminaria trail and stayed in the Little John yurt. It was amazing. The owners and staff were friendly and helpful. Snowshoeing through the luminarias at night in the snow was an magical as I'd heard it could be. The yurt was great too. Toasty warm with everything we needed. This is... More

The trails were well marked and the equipment was very good. The scenery was also great. Remember it's high elevation, so you'll need to adjust to the lower oxygen at first.

This hike started around 6:30 pm. My five year old daughter and I,along with 4 other family members absolutely loved this tour! There are really no words to justify how beautiful, amazing, and exhilarating this hike was. It would have been amazing in and of itself, and then they topped it off with a wonderful dinner! It was a great... More

Oh, this would definitely be a higher rating if only there was better snow cover. Beautiful surroundings, spectacular view of Wheeler Peak, but when we skied there less than half of the trails were skiable, despite being open. The yurts were great to warm up in that were cozy and welcoming. We will be coming back when the snow flies.

We came from ABQ to snowshoe and were not disappointed. Extremely friendly staff who went out of their way to make sure we knew where to go, which paths to take etc. It is extremely well signposted and maintained and despite very little snowfall in the past month they had made the very best of things and it was a...

What an awesome snowshoe trail. Gorgeous scenery, lots of wildlife and various animal tracks everywhere! The warming Yurt was so incredible and relaxing after a long trek. The sofas and wood buring fireplace was an added bonus. Everyone of every age should experience this if physically able. It did not disappoint and neither did the wonderful staff and their canine...

Just spent 2 nights out at Little John yurt to enjoy 3 days of groomed skiing at Enchanted Forest. The base facilities have been upgraded and a brand new yurt with wood stove is in place as a warming hut. The overnight yurt is classic with wood stove, bunks and kitchen/ table. Remember to bring a sleeping bag. We had... More

Evening lumineer walk under the stars with snow shoes or cross country skis was absolutely fantastic, if you happen to be in town Christmas you must go. Went cross country skiing for the first time on groomed trails, felt more like telemarking than cross country skiing... but the only other time I've been cross country skiing was on trails. The...

Went mountain biking with my boys here. Beautiful area. We stayed on the easier trails which were still a little challenging for the 8 and 10 year old boys. Some of the trails were not marked very well which caused some confusion when we were headed back to the car. But overall, a really fun experience. We had a blast... More
