Departure Time: 6:00pm, please be prompt because we will leave at 6:00pm.
Cost: $3.00/vehicle (unless you have a Sandia Mountain Parking Pass). Note: If you don't have a pass, you need to visit the pay box right after you cross the second cattle guard on the right and pay.
Who Should Attend: All fitness levels welcomed. This is a great workout hike!
Hike Description: Piedra Lisa is rated as a moderate hike. We will be hiking up the south side of the trail. From the Piedra Lisa parking lot it is 0.4 miles to the trailhead and it is 2.4 miles total (one way) to the top with approximately 1,600ft. of elevation gain.
The Piedra Lisa Trail is very easy to follow. That being the case, people will be allowed to go at their own pace rather than in a large group. The turnaround time is 55 minutes from our start time.
Note: Since people are hiking at their own pace, you may find yourself hiking by yourself at times.
