This park has nice facilities. We had a BBQ dinner in the park. An nice old owl visited us and I nearly ran over a bunny on the way out. There is a lot of wildlife and the scenery cannot be beaten. I had a great time and would recommend anyone visiting ABQ to stop by and relax in this... More

Long hike and a constant incline but so worth it. Avid hikers and we didn't even make it to the top.

Cost I think $1.00 on the week day - maybe $2.00 per car during the week end. Beautiful park with easy trails and nice picnic areas that are covered.

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

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!
