This is a hike through beautiful, cool and shaded portions of the east side of the Sandias. We will take the Cienega Trail to the crest line. Then walk south on the crestline for 3.5 miles to the South Crest. The views from the crestline are spectacular and this will be a perfect time of year.
I'm envisioning a moderate/strenuous pace.
Santa Fe Outlet Mall is near the end of Cerrillos. We'll park between the Inn at Santa Fe and the mall. Dave's cell is[masked]-7557.
