We went twice - once up the tram, and the second time drove up to Sandia Crest. The drive was amazing. The views were even more spectacular. Definitely a sight to see.

While driving to Albuquerque we decided to make a side trip to Sandia Crest for the view. It appeared to be snowing at upper elevations but we decided to make the drive up. By the time we reached 7,000ft we had snow flurries and coverage in the trees and on the roadside. At the 10,000ft level we had a total coverage on everything and the roads were nearly impassible. We turned around to head back down but got many great pictures while at the top. The kids enjoyed the snow and we had a great time visiting if only briefly.

I love hiking in the great forest with the smell of pine and the warm sun on me. It is quiet, peaceful and beautiful. Completely different forest than the great Northwest. I love the warm air blowing through the trees.

Hiked several trails on east side of Sandia Peak. A little muddy & icey due to recent snows/thaw. Easy to navigate & beautiful surroundings. Several spots to park & hike.

Albuquerque is a city with so much to offer in outdoor activities, and CNF is one of the great treasures. There are some many trail options and things to explore. You must remember that your are going into a wilderness area. Be sure that you are adequate prepared. There are many trails at lower elevations for exploring/exercising, but you also have the opportunity to go much deeper into the wilderness if you so choose. Know your trails and plan ahead. Temperatures can fluctuate greatly from the based of the mountain to the top.
