South Crest Trail
Sandia Mountain Wilderness

South Peak in the Distance

Less than 15 minutes and a quarter mile from the tram, we're already in the wilderness area.  Our first overlook affords us a magnificent view of our destination: South Sandia Peak, approximately six miles away "as the crow flies" but probably more like eight miles by foot.  The elevation drop has been modest to this point at most 200 feet but we will drop quickly after this, as we pass through thick stands of fir and aspen.
