Great work out! We came up Embudo trail and then took the white wash trail on the way down . The way down was not well marked . We got off trail few times but thanks to the app we found our way back safely. It was a great adventure. The AllTrails app is a must have
Great hike. Beautiful views, excellent scenery and a great work out. Hike was definitely a challenge, but we'll worth it. However, there are a ton of forks and trails leading different directions with no signs or directing signals. Overall I definitely enjoyed this hike.
Embudo is south of, considerably shorter than, and quite a bit less traveled than its bigger brother, Embudito Trail (192). The trail is very poorly marked (there were only 2 signposts that I saw the entire time; one at the trailhead and one at the top, where it meets with Three Gun Spring Trail), but I don't mind that about trails. There are also several forks and therefore several ways to get to the end of the route, so just pick which ever you prefer and they will all lead to the same place. There are neat rock formations to see, some large boulders to scale and awesome views of the city to the west. I thoroughly enjoyed this hike, it was actually one of my favorites of all the ones in Sandia that I have accomplished thus far.
