The view at the end of this hike is incredible. it is mostly downhill on the way there but uphill on the way back. took us about 3 hours with a 30 minute break at the end of the trail.

The really outstanding views are blocked by trees for the majority of the hike, but if you can make it to the end of the trail, I guarantee you will be rewarded :)

Gradual hills and a perfect distance for a lunch hike.

beautiful trail!!! one of my new favorites! the way back felt like a completely different trail and the vibe of the trees, alpine meadows, wildflowers, and wildlife felt like Yosemite. A baby mule deer walked straight towards us which elevated the nature magic too.

I just did this trail on Friday, August 26, 2016 and the weather was perfect. I started in the early afternoon I saw deer squirrels chipmunks and the trail is wonderful for it's up-and-down and open fields that happen every so often. This trail I think has become one of my favorites on Sandia Mountain.
