One of the choices hikers have on this trail is the option of taking the longer route (Trail 174), an approximately 7 miles trip, or starting at the parking-lot near the Ponderosa Ridge development and doing a 4.6-mile loop (Trail 170) instead. The trails eventually merge to become one that leeds to the top of Atalaya Mountain's 9,121-foot peak. The trail becomes increasingly more difficult as you near the summit, but it's a small price to pay for the incredible views of the Rio Grande valley and the city below.
