A Must-Have if You Hike the Sandias

on 5/11/2012

This is a great guide -- it has gotten me to many trailheads, and given me a pretty good idea of what to expect once I get on the trail. The info about trail length and elevation gain alone are worth the price of the guide. But then again, so was the description of the Del Agua Overlook in the fall -- wow! I would never have known, would never have seen it, but for this book. There's just one caveat: I hike the Sandias quite a bit but am definitely not Search & Rescue team material. I'm pleased that, at age 50, I can still make it up La Luz (as long as I take the Tram down). I find that I have to translate all of the author's descriptions as to the ease or difficulty of a given trail. If he says it's easy, it'll be a nice hike for me; if he says it's moderate, it's going to be pretty tough. (Case in point: Cienega Trail, which he rates as moderate. It was like being on a stair-stepper for giants most of the way.) If he says it's difficult, I almost certainly won't be able to do the whole trail the first time -- or maybe ever. I can only guess that he's very, very fit, with the footing of a mountain goat. Read More
