The Tram Station on top of Sandia Crest... viewed from the Kiwanis cabin, 1.8 miles away on the
Crest Trail. In the background you can see the east side of the Sandias.
Hiking Down La Luz - a 5+ hour adventure!
We arrived at the Tram station at 8:45am, bought tickets for the first flight
up to the Crest at 9am, then started down.
Our group of able hikers headed down at 9:30am. The trail passes through 5 different
climate zones, forest and boulder fields, for over 9 miles before ending at the
Sonoran desert terrain at the bottom.
Giant spruce, and aspens
The spectacular views were more than we had imagined !!! We finished the
hike in just over 5 hours and it was an adventure we will all never forget. I highly
recommend this hike to anyone in good condition.
