Where to Hike in Scenic Albuquerque This Spring

It’s time to shake the dust off those hiking boots! Living in Albuquerque, there’s a lot of opportunities to get out and explore the world around us. Whether you’re an avid outdoorsman, a beginner, or have some kids in tow, there are trails for every ability level. Here’s a few of our local hike recommendations to properly enjoy the warm spring weather:


·      Piedras Marcadas Canyon is an excellent choice for any undercover history buffs. Located in nearby Petroglyph National Monument, AllTrails labels this as an “easy” hike. Scope out ancient images left from our ancestors while enjoying the warm weather with your friends and family. This will be a memorable outing for kids of all ages as they combine the beauty of nature and wisdom of the ages.

·      Over in the Sandia Foothills Open Space Park to the east of Albuquerque, Piedra Lisa Canyon Trail is a great choice for someone wanting more of a challenge. Since it’s ranked as a “moderate” trail, remember to stretch and bring plenty of water to stay hydrated. This is a great choice if you have some pent-up energy from the winter!

·      If you’re seeking out more of a challenge, the La Luz Trail in the Sandia Mountain Wilderness comes with a 4.5-star rating on AllTrails! It’s pretty far back in the mountains, so plan on an all day excursion. Bring sufficient water, any necessary equipment, and be prepared to have a fantastic adventure!

·      AllTrails has a great selection of hikes that you can check out online! Make sure you account for weather or any health conditions before you hit the trail this spring.
