Reviews

Not super technical, but it makes you work.

We visited ABQ for the first time in November. The city is backed up against the Sandia Mountains… Spanish for Watermelon, referring to the pinkish color the mountains take on during sunsets, wowzas! The mountains are extremely close to town offering a quick and easy escape from city life. We set off on the Pino Trail. Our plan was to hike Pino to the Crest trail to the Sandia Peak Tramway which we would then take back down the mountain. However, we did not pick the best day for the trek and ended up hiking into a rain storm and turned around halfway. Looking for a longer hike? We also heard great things about the La Luz Trail (14mi) … this one also makes it easy for you to hike up and take the Tram down as well if interested.
