We come here every year to soldiers pass to feel and experience the energy of the red rocks. Easy 30 minute hike to seven ponds

A wonderful and scenic trail that hits a lot of the best sights in a relatively short hike - a large sinkhole, the 7 sacred pools, wonderful single-track, jeep trail, and hiking.

Fun trail. But parking space limited to 14 cars. Otherwise can access through Brins Mesa also. A variety of terrain mostly uphill, then downhill coming back. Really a favorite. In and out. Arrive at the flat top portion. Nice views.

The Trail map is misleading and leads to a very long hike. Peaceful but the views were nothing that you couldn't see from the road. But it was not as crowded as other hikes seemed to be.

A nice loop if going Brins Mesa to Soldier's Pass to Cibola Pass. Would have been even better if not for the thunderstorm, drenching rain, and hail -- but still worth it.

Part of the Brin’s Mesa loop. Amazing! Start on Brin Mesa and do the loop. This hike is difficult but not challenging.

We arrived before 8 am and were able to get parking as the lot is small. Cool hike and able to see the "seven pools' on the way up and back.

In our opinion, plan for 1 1/2 to 2 hours unless you have the DNA of a high-hoofing mountain goat and the stamina of a camel (most mortals need to sit and wait until their pulse rates recover). During our last outing up in... More
