This is a loop hike using three of the trails in the Manzano Mountains. The two trails follow stream beds, canyons, while the crest trail follows the ridge line of the mountains. Woods, streams, views.
About 7 miles and 2,000 feet of elevation gain.
As in the Manzano Peak hike that I posted for the day before this one, I am not setting up a car pool from ABQ because I will be camping at the state park. The group can meet at the Smith's at Tramway and Central at 7:30 am and car pool.
Feel free to join me for both hikes and camping down there. There is also a USFS campground at Red Canyon.
