We went here for an evening Mother's Day picnic and very much enjoyed the view from our picnic table and loved hiking the nicely maintained trails. We also did a little geocaching while we were there which was a lot of fun for us and...More

Beautiful at all times of year, but especially nice in spring and fall. Several trails lead to the crest of the Sandia Mountains, but there are also shorter, easier walks if that's what suits you.

My mom and I walked and rolled up to the bird blind at the top of the trail. There were blue birds in the trees and bushes. And a friendly photographer who showed us zoom photo close-ups.

Lovely place, and worth the trip. For all levels of skill, grab your camera, a wide brim hat, and enjoy the views.

Park with several trails, both long and short. A good chance to see the desert terrain up close. Suggest you pair this with a visit to the Rio Grande Nature Center State Park to see the contrast. Two very different environments just a few miles...More

I've been here on a few different occasions. The first time I just explored some of the trails, and came across a patio with an overlook to a pond. It definitely felt as if I'd escaped Albuquerque, but I was just up the street from...More

I've walked these trails many times when I lived in Albuquerque. They are well maintained and frequently used. The only suggestion I would have is there are many areas that could use a small bench or even large sitting rocks in SHADED areas of the...More

We were looking for a place to walk our dog and came upon the Park. It's a cool area, well maintained and natural. Still have to leash your dog which is a downer for us but at least the area helps you feel freeer!

While there are lots of picnic areas to enjoy, this seems to be a launch off point for many a hiker. Lots of trails into the Sandias to be found here. There are toilets and a water tap at the start of the Pino Trail....More

Yes, it gets very windy in March/April and can be a bit chilly,but still lovely for a hike or visit. The homes are awesome and the landscape just breathtaking. Enjoy and be safe.
