Once we took some time to catch our breath and enjoy the first of the views, we backtracked a couple steps and continued on the trail that takes off to the right (if standing on the trail with the fence to the left). There were some great views out over Santa Fe and farther from this section of the hike.
Soon, we came across a small boulder field, which we found our way through by following the rock piles people have built to mark the trail. This part isn't tricky. As long as you head up, you'll find the trail.
The next section of the hike wasn't very strenuous. The ground was nice and soft and there were lots of beautiful trees providing shade. There was some increase in elevation but the trail had some flat or even declining sections as well.
