Meet at the Piedra Lisa parking lot which is beyond the La Luz turn off, onto the dirt road and down about a quarter mile on the left. We will hike to the top of Piedra Lisa and down toward Placitas a ways. I have never gone further north than the top but have heard it can be slippery. This hike should last between 3 and 4 hours. On the way back, we will stop at the top for a snack/lunch.
The trail is steadily steep but very well marked. There are no bathrooms at the trailhead. You need to pay a parking fee at the entrance to FR 333; right after you turn off Tramway and pass the cattle guard, there is a little parking lot to the right with a pay station.
