The Sandia Mountains, alongside Albuquerque, are known for having the second longest tram in the world, but most visitors don't get to experience is the fantastic hiking! Here, you can choose your scenic backdrop....high desert, rocky dramatic crags, evergreen forest and mountain meadows. And despite the fact that most of the mountain is a designated wilderness area, sweeping views of Albuquerque are often part of the experience. If you are itching for nature therapy and want a local to lead the way, I can take you on a hike that suits your preferences, abilities and the weather. There are trails with gentle rolling hills and trails that will challenge your stamina, but conclude with a big scenic pay off. There truly is something for everyone. We can also lengthen the hike beyond a couple hours. I live at the base of this beautiful mountain, hike in them year round and am quite familiar with most of the trails on the west side. As a biologist, I might also share bits of information about the wildlife and ecology as we hike. And if you are just looking for a 'trail taxi' to drop you off and pick you up from a trailhead, I can do that for a reduced price.
What I will bring:
Transportation to and from your location in Albuquerque to the selected trailhead (up to 4 people) First aid kit Forest Service parking fee Biscochitos (Traditional New Mexican cookies. You'll hike for cookies, right?)
What you need to bring:
Hiking shoes with good grip Proper clothing Water Sunscreen Sunglasses Hat Daypack for snacks and other items
per 2 hours
