Cerrillos Hills was our second hiking spot of the day. I guess I read a little too much into my internet research beforehand, because we were expecting to see a lot (mining wise). We hiked two easy trails (.2 and .8 miles), and saw two...More

This a little gem of a state park. The park's office have knowledgable employees and volunteers about the history of the area. The walks are short enough fo so-so hikers, but more ambitious ones can take all the trains and get a workout. What I...More

This hike was in an area with limited parking, but we were the only folks there. Took about a 1-2 mile hike and went past most of the mines. I liked the informative signs placed near each of the mines. The trail map provided excellent...More

This is a fantastic easy hike...if you are an experienced hiker. The park has about 5 miles of trails. For those reviewers who "aren't impressed" New Mexico's charm is that it is rural rocky and rough. It is a paradise to hikers, bikers and nature...More

Great little out of the way park. Restroom, picnic and trails were immaculate and marked well. Number of options for short hikes up to about 5mi. Mine history was intersting. Nice views.
