This may be my new favorite hike in Albuquerque. We took the tram to the top of the Sandia Crest and hiked to Kiwanis Cabin to watch the sunset. The weather was perfect at the beginning of July and the trail was easy enough to bring an out-of-state visitor along with us for the view.

Good for kids and old folks. Really beautiful
views of Sangre de Christos and Redondo Peak.
Trail ends at a canyon edge which is nice but not as
spectacular as the Frijoles Canyon which is much larger. But still a really nice hike!

Nice mellow hike for me, my wife Cheri, and our dog Jasper. Loved it, Hot in the valley but cool up on the mountain.

This is the easiest trail (above 10k elevation) I have found in the SF area. Nice to ski in winter too. Today the flies were out in force especially near the trailhead. Good trail for an easy run at altitude.

trail can easily be picked up by the Santa Fe farmers market, beautiful trail through town

very nice and easy hike

I do this hike all the time with my dog. It's pretty easy although at some points the trail gets confusing but take a picture of the map and follow the trail markers as you go along. Halfway through the trail you get a great southern view. The trail is very beautiful especially in the fall when the leaves change colors.

I can only imagine how nice a walk this would be in the early summer when the wildflowers are in bloom. It is a very easy hike with wonderful vistas in all directions. Lots of signs of animals but we didn't see any.

Fantastic views of the crest! The snow made it feel and look like a winter wonderland. It was very cold that day so make sure to wear layers if you are going in the winter.
