Great hike with my dogs. The trail is hard to find. Look at my photo's to see where to park. It's the second bridge not the first. Good Mtn. Lion tracks in the snow towards the top.
I started at the bottom of the trail off of forest road 165.
the trail is a little hard to locate because it is unmarked. Park just south of a stone bridge. You will see a lone fence post. Just beyond the fence post uphill is the Sandia Wilderness sign. Just like most of the trails in the Sandia's, this one is one long thump uphill. After just under a mile you will come to a small ridgeline where the trail flattens for a short distance. There are some nice views of the Sandia's and nieghboring mountians. I didn't run into anyone. My dogs were able to run free. There was some skunk scatt and possible some bear scatt. This trail would be hot in summer months. It made for a nice winter hike.
