This trail is an excellent trail which begins from the same trail head as the Sandia Cave Trail, just take the trail that leads up the mountain on the right after leaving the parking lot.
The easy to follow trail is mostly shady and not very rocky. I did not go all the way to the end because I had limited time but next time I will. The views of the canyon are spectacular!
