South Peak by Embudito Trail

A very nice short day hike! From the beginning, you’re very fast out of the city and all on your own. But there are always some people hiking you can talk with!

In the last part, from the intersection Embudito – South Peak up to the summit, I’ve been surprised by the wind and got pushed against the rocks a couple of times. But it was definitely worth it, as the view from up there is just breath-taking; you can see miles away in almost every direction.

That was my last hike in the Sandias before flying back home, and probably one of the best ones!
