South Crest Trail
Sandia Mountain Wilderness

Albuquerque in the Distance

Near the junction with the Pino Canyon trail, we look down (west) upon Albuquerque's Elena Gallegos Open Space.  The Pino Canyon trail is a challenging 4.5 mile climb from the picnic ground to here.  To the east, the Cienega trail descends (more gently) to another picnic area and a spring that are easily accessible from the Sandia Crest highway.  The high altitude and clear skies can mean quick sunburns, so carry some sunscreen in your pack.
