The hike isn't long or very hard though you do need to watch where you're walking on the rocky and uneven trail. The views in the Sandia Mountains are amazing, as are the far distant views back toward Bernalillo and to the north. The harder...More
You drive down a VERY bumpy road until you see the signs and parking lot. You may need an SUV or truck to survive the road. The trail is a slow uphill walk. The view is spectacular so bring your camera. You’ll be surprised by...More
