Access this great trail in minutes from the heart of Albuquerque. Hike up hidden canyons, climbing to vistas and into stands of pinon, juniper and aspen. Vistas of the city and the western horizon are fabulous.

A beautiful choice for seeing the Sandias in all their spendor. Depending on your fitness, you can go for a short hike or all the way to the crest trail.
