    The trail starts out in the high desert foothills with lots of rocks to maneuver around. Look for the fork to the right that goes down into a stream bed. Look for an orange arrow painted on a rock. Scramble up the rocks to your right behind a small notched tree stump. This starts your trek into a shady stream area with running water and mini waterfalls (in May). There is a variety of vegetation including juniper and ponderosa pine. Closer to the crash site, there are a lot of steep rocks To scramble over. Be sure to veer to the left to avoid running into a boulder in the slot canyon. The crash site is a very somber and sacred place. I was privileged to have been able to stay there a while.

    This is a great hike for iNaturalist nerds like me because of the diversity of plants and wildlife.

    This was my first mountain hike in New Mexico. It was winter with fresh snowfall over a dense snowpack so I lost the trail a couple of times, but it was easy to find again. Lots of wildlife, very relaxing hike!

    May be on the shorter end of the hikes I’ve done but what it lacks in distance it makes up in elevation gain! The wreck is a cool place to see, and the trail itself has much wildlife, saw many birds, some deer, and a rattlesnake.

    This is a beautiful relatively easy hike up to a gorgeous view of the West side of the Sandia mountains looking down on Albuquerque.

    I love this trail. The scenery changes so much throughout the hike. The mileage is actually closer to 9 miles but I wandered around a bit at the top. Photos are hazy due to smoke from a forest fire in Arizona.

    This is a nice trail! It’s in the pine forest and has pretty good cover from the sun. It’s got a mild gain of about 950ft where it intersects with the Crest trail. It’s worth continuing on the crest trail for just a bit to get over the ridge to a great view of Albuquerque.

    The app will take you to a random neighborhood and up through and arroyo to find the trail. I recommend parking at elena gallegos and getting on the trail from there. Once you get past the wreckage, the terrain becomes very steep, hard packed snow and ice near the top. Gorgeous views from the Ridgeline.

    This is the best area to cross country ski in the Sandia’s. The trails range from a Jeep road to back country hiking trails.

    We hiked up to the crash site on a cool fall day. Beautiful weather and a great hike. I had not been up to the site in years but I still love this hike.

    Trails transitioning from snow covered to patchy snow/ice. A lot of downed trees, due to recent high winds. Still a favorite hike though.

    I would not rate this as an easy hike. While it is only 5 miles round trip, the elevation gain is almost 1,000 ft plus there are a lot of very rocks, scree, and ups and downs. It's one of my favorite hikes but it is not for a beginner.
