Great views on this hike through the lower Sandia Mountains on eastern slope. Can connect with La Luz trail to take to the top of the mountain. Trail is well marked throughout most of hike. Little shade at the beginning - better to go in cooler months or it can become a very hot hike. Will be passing near many residential areas so watch for signs to stay off private property. Can be steep in places - lots of rocks to hike over in certain parts.

Great hike for a morning or if you are short on time. Good for kids and those of us new to hiking and just wanting to get out and see something beyond the city.

Don't recommend this trail in the summer. We did this in July, there was shade in some areas but it was still hot. Trail marking is okay but we did wander off the trail a bit on the way back to the parking lot. Lots of granite and large rocks, therefore it's not flat. Great views!

Trailhead was easy to find and trail was well marked on the way up. We must have missed a turn off on the way down because we ended up in a residential area and had to walk the road to get back to Tramway Blvd and our car. Great views along the way. There wasn't a certain place that we could find that ended the trail so we went with the 2.5 mile mark via our GPS and turned around. It appears to connect with other trails which go further up the mountain. Fun hike and would love to do it again. Took our 4 year old - no problems but at higher elevations, there are some drop offs we had to watch out for as the path narrows.
