The hike description follows but I want everyone to know that I am flying into Albuquerque late the night before and so if my flight is cancelled the hike will be too, unless someone else wants to step in as organizer. I will send an email to all who RSVP yes if I will not be able to make it. I should know by early Friday evening.

Length: 7 miles round trip

Difficulty: moderate for some, a little difficult for others (this trail is steep for the final two miles and there is some scrambling)

Elevation: 6,450 8,810 feet

We will meet at the Albertson's at Academy and Tramway (12201 Academy Road NE) at 9 am and drive to the parking area in the Elena Gallegos Open Space area. If you want to meet us at the trailhead, turn left immediately after at the gatehouse and drive to the small parking area at the end of the road. Fee is $2 on weekends.

The hike ascends gradually through open space and then heads into the canyon. We follow the stream bed for a while and then the trail gets steep. Just before the site there is one place where we need to climb up some large boulders. Consequently, this is not a good hike for dogs. We will stop at the site to explore and/or have a snack/lunch and return the way we came. We will hike at moderate pace (an average of 2 miles per hour).

How to find us:East side of parking lot
