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.

Fun and gorgeous trail! Started at 8:30am and made it through 90% of the trail. Finished around 1:15pm with a few breaks. Around mile 3 the trail narrows and it becomes hard to social distance (just FYI for Covid). Good mix of shade and sun. Saw a few other hikers and dogs. Trail is not safe for your dog to be off leash. The trail is way too narrow and has steep drop-offs that make it dangerous for an off-leash dog. The last ~0.5 miles narrows substantially and I couldn’t get up with my dog. Otherwise, an extremely lovely hike that is challenging in some parts and has lots of nice views. Parking is is $3.

Really beautiful out and back, lots of wildflowers along the way. Was pretty crowded for the first 2-3 miles. Recommend bringing extra water for the final ascent!

We went 4/18, there was some snow at the top, but it was passable. Even in the middle of the day, hike wasn’t too bad with the shade!

I run this trail a few times a week. Starting from the Spain parking lot. First few miles are easy. Then it gets fun! Beautiful views. Usually not crowded on weekdays.

Trail is pretty decent, not hard to follow at all. I’ve seen different reviews give different round trip lengths; my Apple Watch read 12.5 miles on the dot when I got back to my car. The last mile(ish) from the top has some thick ice, but enough people have gone over it and created indents which we used to step in. Overall, well worth the work. You can also use this trail to get to South Crest Trail 130 and the Cienega Trail. “Everything natural- every flower, tree, and animal- has important lessons to teach us if we would only stop, look, and listen.” - Eckhart Tolle

Hiked this today with my family. My daughter is 7 and didn’t think it was tough. We passed other kids on the trail, as well. The trail is absolutely beautiful! It looked landscaped. We had to turn around around 1.75 miles up because it was snowing and hailing. What an adventure! We definitely want to hike this again.
