Great views on this hike through the lower Sandia Mountains on eastern slope. Can connect with La Luz trail to take to the top of the mountain. Trail is well marked throughout most of hike. Little shade at the beginning - better to go in cooler months or it can become a very hot hike. Will be passing near many residential areas so watch for signs to stay off private property. Can be steep in places - lots of rocks to hike over in certain parts.

I didn't have the best experience hiking this trail. We hiked the La Luz trail and we decided to take the tram down. We forgot that the tram parking lot is far away from where we parked, the La Luz trail parking lot. We had this trail another 2.5 miles in 107 degree weather with hardly any water after already hiking the La Luz. If you're going to hike this trail, I wouldn't recommend doing it the same way that I did.

Great hike for a morning or if you are short on time. Good for kids and those of us new to hiking and just wanting to get out and see something beyond the city.

2.6 miles to the la Luz trailhead. 10* incline most of the way there. Good for families and dogs
