Sandia Crest

recommendation by goose

Driving up the north side of the Sandia mountains is a quick way to get up to the crest, which has impressive and normally crystal clear views of all of Albuquerque, and the surrounding desert area, including the volcanoes. It takes an hour or more to drive up, but it's a great chance to stop at the little towns on the way up. From the crest there are lots of hiking, biking, and skiing options (check the Cibola Forest website for trails) or there are picnic tables and benches to just sit.
