Beautiful trail, and gorgeous views. I would recommend dressing warm if you're heading on the trail during winter time. Around 4:15 pm the winds start to pick up and it gets very chilly.

The landscape changed three times. At the bottom and beginning, the vegetation was protected by the boulder hills and felt like a desert forest. A little bit of rock scrambling was required over beautiful pink granite. Once beyond the first bend into the range, the trail was rather flat and sandy with tons of desert scrub. After gaining a bit of elevation zigzagging up into the first crests, we scrambled through an alpine forest with snow covered granite and patches of cacti. What a unique hike up! Although we stopped at the first crest (7880 ft), we could see abq, the iron rich sandia peaks, snow capped mountains off in the distance, and white dune like hills.

Great work out! We came up Embudo trail and then took the white wash trail on the way down . The way down was not well marked . We got off trail few times but thanks to the app we found our way back safely. It was a great adventure. The AllTrails app is a must have
