This is a nice hike in the Sandias that can take you to the Crest Trail. If you want, you can continue on the Crest trail to the Tramway and take the easy way down the mountain. The trail is in good condition but there are some steep parts. Also there is a lot of shade which is much appreciated when the NM sun is out in full force. There are a few springs but you can't depend on them to be there in the dry months. You can expect to get some great views of the Sandias on the way up.

The hike was challenging, but beautiful! The terrain changes significantly throughout the Trail, which keeps things interesting! I had a blast and enjoyed sitting on the large rocks at the top and enjoying the view!

This hike will test your limits. Make sure you're hydrated in advance and on the trail. Lunch or snack at the traverse points near the top.

Great variation in vegetation zones for ABQ. Not really a view at the top. Path was easy with good uphill gradients but the path can also be narrow at times.
