Amazing trail for visiting during the sunset, a must see trail in Albuquerque

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.

trail starts out easy, walk through fire charred trees but quickly turns fairly aggressive as you scramble the rocks. Beautiful views from top. Pay close attention to cairns marking trail as there are several paths up the final stretch before the arch.

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.

Wonderful trail! The trail was easy to navigate and featured a wide variety of plant and animal life. Parts of the trail are closed from March until August so there were a few detours, but again they were very easy to follow.

A great trail but is slippery coming down Del Agua as the steam blocked the trail a bit and is slow moving so don't run too much.
