Very fun to do with family! Some parts were trickier for the younger ones but a lot of fun overall!

I went well the 1.9 miles that’s shown for the trail. Well marked and then you are on your own scrambling up the rocks in what is water flow track from the Sandia’s.

This trail is great iin the beginning but then your off going down rocks and a stream bed, mot sure if that was the down part of the trail. I also think it is longer than 3.1 miles

Well marked, light traffic. No shaded areas, so be sure to go earlier or later in the day.

Some of these pictures are actually of the pino trail. This trail isn't as green since it's still in the foothills. Still a great hike but don't expect very much shade

Nice little short hike but straight up, nice payoff with a good view. If you have 30 min this is a nice one for a quick workout.

Nice trail for all levels of hiking. Once at the top, you can continue to venture to higher elevations, which was nice.

Fun, short trail. A good amount of scrambling so although it says dog friendly, it's not really.

It's a nice hike with a really good view, however it's not as dog friendly as I would've liked.

Take note that under categories this trail has "rock climbing." It was more rock climbing than I personally like, but it's got some great views. My hiking poles were not useful with so much climbing.

This trails good for a short hike in the foothills. Some small amount of scrambling is needed.

Perfect for a shorter hike

I absolutely love hiking the sandias. I try to get out at least once a week all year long adventuring to each side nook and cranny that's appropriate for the weather conditions that day. This trail is very steep and if there are more than a few hikers out that day it feels over crowded. With many shear rocks the noise of even the quietest conversation carries throughout the canyon. If you're looking for a challenging and quick steep climb this is the perfect trail for you.

Great view and short work out. Easy to get to and we will come back to explore and connect with other trails.

My car got broken into at this trail head and the officers told me this has been happening at this trail head once a week! Don't park here, even if you aren't alone. I made that mistake and was the only car that got broken into. Stay safe.
