2700 camino de la sierra NE , Albuquerque, NM
To do this hike, I will need two people to meet me at Embudito TH at 5:15 to leave cars for the return.
We will hike from the Piedra Lisa Canyon parking area up the canyon over some interesting rock formations. After some exploration of the lower canyon, we will continue off trail up to the Whitewash trail (total gain of about 2000 ft). This will be the really strenuous part, keeping up a good pace going uphill.
Once we meet the Whitewash trail, we follow it for about a half mile until a junction with the south ridge of Embudito canyon. From there, we follow the path down the ridge to the TH for Embudito.
Not a lot of distance (2-4 miles), but should be at least 2000ft elevation gain. Be sure to bring water, sunscreen, and a snack. No dogs on this one.
To get to the TH, take Candelaria east until it ends. Turn right until you see the Piedra Lisa Canyon parking area on your left.
