Up and down from Tijeras Canyon - going down into Albuquerque, from Albuquerque city parking- it's mostly up. It's basically a granite trail with fine granite gravel. It can be slippery others say to use poles-but good gripping shoes are better.
This trail is great In the early spring and late fall. It has a fairly dry ascent until right before the match up with Embudito. From there it is in the pines and will be shaded and to a degree sheltered from winds. It is a wonderful start to a crossover to Oso Pass and Embudo or even a long out and back to the south peak. Either way there is a ton of fun to be had in the south Sandias.
