Eye of the Sandias hike - Get some Sunday morning cardio in

  • This location is shown only to members

Join us for a short, but steep hike on the west side of the Sandias. Our destination is the rock foundation, "the Eye", where an unknown person painted a weeping eye. Urban legend has it that the eye represents the mountain crying over the encroachment of the city. Nobody knows who is responsible for the original painting or the recent new coat of paint, but half the fun is the hike anyway. We plan to maintain a fairly brisk pace to get our heartrates up.

Total distance (out and back): 4.5 miles

Elevation gain: 1649 ft.

Total time: 2-2.5 hrs., this includes time for photos and snacks at the top

What to bring: water, snacks, long sleeve shirt or light jacket, it could be cool at the top and it will probably be windy

Dogs: Allowed, but must be leashed.
