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.

Was a straightforward trail with a good rise in altitude. Took close to 11miles to finish so start off early. There is a lot of activity here especially at the beginning of the trail but that will diminish the further up you go.
