Three Gun Springs Timed Hike, Dog Friendly (Moderately Strenuous)

  • August 15, 2013 · 5:45 PM

If meeting at trailhead, meet us at 6:05

Meet at Smiths Grocery Store at Central SE, and Tramway Blvd. at 5:45 P.M. for a short carpool to the trailhead.

Distance: ~2.4 mi. one-way. We hike to the post at the top of the Tres Pistoles/Embudo trail intersection.

Elevation Gain: 1643 ft.Rating: Moderately strenuous. 

 This is a timed hike meaning hikers should push themselves a little faster than their normal pace.  Bring: Water, snack, and poles, if you use them. This is a steep trail toward the top.  It’s in a canyon so it is somewhat cooler than along the west side of the Sandias.  Hikers should be tolerant of lose dogs.  It is an out and back meaning we’ll come back on the same trail so no one should worry about being too far behind. Everyone should turn around after 50 minutes. We will meet at Smith's at Central and Tramway, NE, then carpool to the Monticello Dr. Trailhead off old Route 66.

 Let us know if you're meeting us at the trailhead.

Limit 10 hikers. If you RSVP and can't make it, please change your RSVP as soon as you know so that others will have an opportunity to advance from the waitlist.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
