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.
