Hike Piedra Lisa from ABQ to Placitas with a detour on Del Agua - Moderate Plus

  • To Be Announced

    Directions will be emailed to members attending, Albuquerque, NM (map)

    35.084492 -106.651138

  • Half of us will leave our cars at the Piedra Lisa North trailhead in Placitas.  We'll then car pool over to Piedra Lisa south trailhead off FR 333 and Tramway.  The hike from Piedra Lisa south trailhead to the saddle of Piedra Lisa will be a timed hike at everyone's own pace.  We'll meet at the saddle and stay together for the rest of the hike down to Placitas.  Del Agua north of the saddle is said to be a prettier hike than taking Piedra Lisa all the way to Placitas, so we'll take that trail when it runs into Piedra Lisa.  Total hiking Distance about 6 1/2 miles.  Bring a lunch and we'll stop and enjoy the view and have lunch.

    There is a chance we'll miss the Del Agua trail and end up hiking all the way down on Piedra Lisa.  The cutoff to Del Agua can be hard to find.  If we end up on Piedra Lisa all the way down, that may add an extra mile to the hike.

    We are meeting in Placitas at 9:00 to drop cars at the Del Agua trailhead.  We will then car pool over to the Piedra Lisa trailhead and arrive some time about 9:45.

    THIS HIKE REQUIRES CAR POOLING COORDINATION.  SO, PLEASE IF YOU SIGN UP FOR THIS HIKE MAKE SURE YOU PLAN TO ATTEND.  NO SHOWS AND LAST MINUTE CANCELLATIONS ARE NOT OK.

    This hike is not for beginners.

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.
