jdzahariaUp Crest, Down CCC  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 28, 2015


I started at the Canyon Estates Trailhead. Went up the Crest Trail. Spent a few minutes poking around at the summit, then went down to the ridge to BM Deer and sat on the rocks to eat lunch. Decended via CCC trail.

Hiked with my dog, Marjean, the Embudo/3 Guns/Embudito/Crest trail combination. 3 hrs., 55 min. up, 3 hrs., 20 min down. The first half mile of the Embudo trail is a bit hard to follow; the trails higher up are great! Awesome fall weather.

Parked at the Canyon Estates Trailhead (Free!) and followed the Crest Trail #130 to its intersection with the Faulty. Had to use a compass and map to bisect the two trails and find the CCC. Brutal trail, and difficult to find at times closer to the top. On the bright side there's no way to get lost, just plow on through to the ridge. Started at 1pm and returned to the trailhead at ~8pm

My first peak after moving to ABQ on August 1st. Loved the lush North face of the canyon. 2:30 to the summit and 1:45 down, including a loop around to the Crest Trail and back over Deer Pass on the descent.

Date Climbed: Mar 31, 2012
Started out from South Sandia Crest trailhead (the free entrance) in Tijeras. At the 195A junction we hopped on the CCC trail which takes you to Deer Point directly. Fast but steep the trail is in surprisingly good condition. After catching the crest trail at the top we stopped by Deer Point and then took the trail along the face from the "saddle" to the summit of South Sandia Peak. We followed the Crest trail all the way back to the trailhead. Not many people on the way up, but quite a few on the way down. Good to see people out and about in the good weather. Awesome view of Albuquerque and the rest of the crest.

Started early in the Morning. Trail was packed and Icy. A storm started to move in so I had to turn back. I got to about Oso Pass.

I've always wanted to do this hike, and I finally got the chance. Awesome views at the top. I'm going to have to do this again from Embudito or Embudo.

The dang turn south near the top on the main trail continues to puzzle me.

Unplanned trip with my friend, Chris. We bushwhacked straight up the east face from the South Crest Trailhead. Spent the night on the summit and came down the next day via the trail.

Great day! Spectacular views!

Climbed this for a 2nd time on 9-26-16 via Embudito. Made it to the summit in 2:18 and back in 2:00. This time of year was fantastic with the oaks turning orange and the aspens yellow. This is a great peak, and the best part is that the Embudito trailhead is only 10 minutes from my house! 3rd ascent 11-27-17 via Embudito.

weeds19First NM summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 1, 1999


A new friend from work invited me on a hike up South Sandia and I quickly agreed to join him for my first NM summit. I later climbed the peak again on a south to north day hike that spanned the whole range and was 22+ miles long.

lizrdboySandia Traverse  Sucess!


Started in Placitas and headed South, up, then along the Sandia ridge. Stopped in at the High Finance for a pint of course, then continued on. Camped with a great view of the Abq lights. Next day we hit the South Sandia summit and kept hiking till we hit I-40. Fun.

This was my second time up from the Embudito trail. Excellent views and such. We are lucky to have such sublime wilderness right at our doorstep in Abq.
