Trail shared by Jason Fincher

Connector to La Luz Trail for those who want to park at the Tram.

Features Views

There is a $3 parking fee.

Description

Trailhead: Exit the I40 at Tramway and head North for 8.4 miles. Turn right onto Tramway Rd and follow for about a mile into the parking area.

This trail is used by those who want to hike up La Luz Trail and then ride the Tram back to their car. This is a typical Sandia foothills hike, though there is a significant elevation gain to reach La Luz Trail. There are numerous unnamed secondary trails in the area and it is easy to get sidetracked.
