Lots of trails, great views but be very wary of the bike riders who seem to think that this area is exclusively theirs and make no concessions to get out of the way or avoid you when they come zooming around a blind corner.

Well maintained trail leads into the Sandias. The grade isnt to bad and the trail is interesting with good views. If you walk into the hills maybe a mile up the trail, then walk left or right off of the trail you will have plenty of space with no one around.

Great place to go for a hike at sunset. Well great anytime but if you can make it at sunset, the views are especially pretty.

We found this site on TripAdvisor and visited on a Sunday morning. It is a very popular spot with limited amount of parking, sort of under the Sandia Tramway. We only walked along the nature trail, but the scenery and condition of the trail were great. One could hike up/down the mountain and ride the tram the other direction. Plan... More

this is a place where everyone - i mean everyone can have a wonderful time and able to access this beautiful foothill space siting under the cliffs of the sandias. the pino trail is gradual and very interesting in that it rises through NM's varied climates. which means one can see flora and fauna which reflect the gradual climb to...

We hiked one of the trails that would have taken us to the TWA plane wreck from years ago if we had had the stamina to finish the hike (altitude still an issue). We did enjoy the trail as far as we went (about 2/3 of the way) and loved the picnic area for eating the lunch that we packed.... More
