Educational Hike on the Piedra Lisa Trail, A NMVFO Maintained Trail; Hike Out and Back 4 Miles with Trail Builder Veteran Bill Velasquez
Join us for a hike up Piedra Lisa and on to the Rincon Ridge spur trail where we will take a break at an area with great views. This trail receives annual maintenance courtesy of NMVFO and is steeped in local history and lore. We will hike at a good pace to stay warm yet enjoy the surroundings and talk a little about what you are seeing. This trail is hikeable all year and this hike will happen regardless of weather. However, you should be prepared for any conditions including snow and cold. The pace and distance may be adjusted depending on snow and ice.
This trail climbs 1,200' in two miles with most of that happening in the last mile, so please be comfortable with that before you sign up because this hike is limited to 10 people You need to bring water and snacks. We will meet at the Starbucks on Academy and Tramway. Park in the lot that is in the far SE corner to leave space open for businesses. We will carpool from here, but if you feel like you may need to leave early, you can follow us to the TH where there is free parking.
(Since hike groups in the Sandias are limited to 10, please be considerate and show up to the hike if you RSVP.)
