fun trail

Very nice trail. I went in may and there was still snow up top. It was more difficult than expected, once you've reached what you think is the top.... You're half way there! Absolutely worth it though.

Ran up Pino, Great views of the crest to the north. The trail gets narrow and icy about 3.5 miles up and continued until the crest trail. I used microspikes and poles from here. Without the microspikes, I would have turned back. I turned left on the crest and took it to Sandia Peak then back to the tram. The snow pack on the crest trail would swallow my leg to the knee at times. it was slow going. But the views!! I took time to take picthures from several slightly off trail overlooks. It was about 8 miles from Ellena Gallegos parking to the tram and 9.5 to the peak with a cabin trail connector. Then 1.5 back to tram down. Great views on top!! Especially near the cabin.

Steep and fun! Wear good hiking shoes!

This trail is one of my favorites close to town trails. A large part of the trail runs next to a small stream (which in New Mexico is a big deal), and there are rocks to climb on! Pretty warm if you start midday, definitely a good early morning hike.

Logged 9.25 miles out and back on endomondo. Icy still toward the top. Yak Trax or micro spikes advised!

Hiked this trail with my family yesterday. It was incredible! I found it to be challenging, but oh my gosh the views at the top were amazing! Worth every step! I can't wait to do it again!

We made it an awesome adventure!!!
