Making an Epic Loop

If you want an epic day hike, take Rozamiento to Tramway Trail. Follow Tramway Trail north to its connection to La Luz Trail. La Luz Trail then follows 7+ miles up Sandia Peak to the crest. Complete the Crest Trail hike at the Sandia Tram. Take the Tram down to the south end of Tramway Trail and then return to you car by hiking north on Tramway trail back to Rozamiento. The Tram is $9 one way, but a great ride with amazing views.
Avoid doing this hike in summer. It can be hellishly hot.
