“A few steps into the foothills, and you are all alone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

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.

“Awesome at sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

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.

“great trails and views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

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 on spending 1-8 hours. Picnic sites are available but take food and water.
