Hiking the La Luz Trail

Hiking the up the La Luz Trail to Sandia Crest with my dad in September. It is about a 3-4 hour hike depending on how fast you are moving. It is approximately 7.5 miles with a 3800 foot gain in elevation. Temperature was in the mid 40's at the top (10,678 feet) so we were a bit underdressed (a sweat shirt would have been nice). I did the La Luz Trail race with my dad when I was 16 and it was definitely tough. The forest service has since limited the number of participants to 400. So now there is a lottery system to see who is “lucky” enough to get to do the run. In the fall 2001 issue of Trail Runner Magazine, La Luz was selected as one of the "12 Most Grueling Trail Races in North America". It is definitely more fun to just walk and enjoy the incredible beauty of the Sandia Mountains. The La Luz Trail head is located just north of Sandia Heights and Tierra Monte; two very desirable neighborhoods in the foothills of the Sandia Mountains in far NE Albuquerque.

Hiking with my family at Sandia Peak

The temperature in Albuquerque was hovering around 102 degrees so we headed up the Sandia Peak Tramway for a day of hiking on top of the mountain in July 2012. It was in the low 80's on top but still a welcome relief from the heat below. We had a great time hiking on the trails and taking in the breathtaking scenery. We topped it all off with a green chili cheeseburger and a cold beer at High Finance restaurant before heading back down the mountain. What a great way to spend a day!
