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

Always a lovely escape from the the hustle and bustle by taking a hike in the Sandia Mtns. Elena Gallegos is a great place to begin. Park here to find miles of fun hikes at various levels of difficulty and always with beautiful views!

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...

Great place to walk, view the mountains, birds and other critters. Adequate parking, all paved walk ways and very well maintained bridges and kiosks.

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

Based on the reviews, we thought it would be worth a visit for a tourist attraction but we were mistaken. It is park for those who want to bike/hike or locals who want to spend some time there. There wasn't a whole lot for the tourists.

Living close by to this beautiful park is an added bonus. Hiking on weekdays one sometimes never comes across other hikers or bikers - image a park next to a city of over 700,000, silent and quiet with tranquil vistas of the city and the Sandia Mountains. This is truly a haven for nature lovers. In fact, just off of... More

Head north on Tramway one street past Academy to the Elena Gallegos Open Space area. There are several trails and all have spectacular views. Pino trail takes you to the top of the Sandia Crest and is a great hike. Great area for an hour or a day.
