Hiking Sandia Crest

My husband has family who lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Naturally when we went to visit, I had to find a hike to do!


Most people who visit Albuquerque are told to do the Sandia Tramway. It is a really great experience with beautiful views. But being that is something I have done, I decided to forgo that. Instead my husband and cousin and I drove up and hiked!

It was beautiful. We completed a loop combining two trails. The drive up the Sandia Crest Scenic Highway was beautiful and surprisingly quick.


South Crest La Luz Loop Trail
3.2 miles RT | 1.5 hours | 836 feet | Easy

This is a beautiful moderately trafficked loop.  What is really cool is the different environments. Going on the South Crest you are in forest and trees and on La Luz you are at the edge with rocky points and sweeping views of Albuquerque New Mexico.



There looks to be all sorts of really neat trails there. 
What a fun area to explore!
