La Cienega Canyon (Santa Fe River Canyon)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What to Expect:

A deep canyon with lots of flora due to Santa Fe River flowing through its entirety. The Canyon also contains a large petroglyphs panel. All this is just 40 minutes from Albuquerque. There is a trail through much of the trip but understand the path is primitive at times and there will be places where the path disappears and you will have to push limbs out of the way but it isn't that big of a deal, I just don't want you to think this area is like hiking a trail in the Sandias. There will be multiple stream crossings. You may be able to stay dry, but be prepared to get your feet wet just in case. -- The first part of the trail is rocky, so I really recommend sturdy boots and a walking stick. There is a few hundred feet change in elevation in the first mile of the trip but once in the canyon there isn't much change in elevation.  We should be back in town by 6 p.m.  or so.

Deadline to Sign up or Cancel is Friday at 7 p.m.

 

Directions:

Burger King is located on Alameda east of 1-25.


Bring:

*2 liters water (minimum - No Water, No Going with us)

*Snacks (Recommended)

*Good sturdy footwear

*Walking Stick and Hat, Sunscreen ( Highly Recommended)

*First Aid Kit (Please Have something)

 

If you can work out carpooling, that would be great, just make sure to offer the person driving gas money and try to work it out in advance.  I don't know if Burger King cares if we leave vehicles or not, but there is a hotel right there as well and I suspect that would not be an issue.  BK likely won't care either but we probably should be nice enough to ask.

    There are two Burger King's with this address - one's Alameda NE and one's Alameda NW. The one on Alameda NE is on I25 and Alameda. The one on Alameda NW is on Alameda near Cottonwood. Which Burger King are we meeting??

      Fortunately, the link from BK on this page takes you to the right local. I also added directions to the meetup. Thanks again.

      I thought as much since the link showed the one on I25, but having two BK's with the same address threw me for a loop!
