Last week I did the loop up Embudo, over on Three Gun Springs and down Whitewash. See my recording for the connector trail from Whitewash to the Embudo parking lot. This connector avoids the bottom part of Whitewash, which is steep and full of loose rock and gravel. Also note where it is easy to miss the left hand turn coming down Whitewash. There is another place to go wrong farther up Whitewash that looks like a Y on the way back. The key is to check in with the All Trails map and stay left.

Great hike, with some difficult sections last mile near top of trail. Went up to Three Gun trail. Fairly flat in that area, good spot for lunch break in the trees.

Wonderful trail in southern Sandias. Bit of a pitch toward the end.

Challenging hike, mostly due to not knowing where the trail was at times. Ended up climbing over boulders and backtracking several times. Otherwise, it was a beautiful and difficult climb.
