“A hike on the north 10k Trail to the Osha Loop Trail. Take the Osha Loop Trail counter clockwise to the Crest Trail.”— Jason Follingstad
About 1 mile into the loop, you'll intersect the Osha Springs Trail. There is no sign here. Turn left and start up the trail. About 1.2 miles of climbing later, and you'll top out on the North Crest Trail #130N with a view of Bernalillo. Before getting to the Crest Trail, you'll cross Ellis Trail and Survey Trail.
Continue on the Crest Trail for another 0.2 miles until you see the sign for the Osha Loop Trail. Take this trail down 0.5 miles to return to the 10k Trail. You'll cross the Ellis Trail and Survey Trail again. Take the 10k Trail back to the parking lot, and you are done!
Signage was clear, with the exception of the Osha Loop Trail and Osha Springs Trail intersection where no signs existed.
