Bear Canyon Senior Center Hiking Group
Old – New Embudo Trails – Sandia Mountain West
Thurs, 2020-02-13 @ 8:00 AM
HIKE CHANGE NOTICE
Highlights: This hike takes you through a narrow, rock-lined canyon that eventually opens up with mountain ridges in all directions — South Peak to the east, Post Peak and Post Pass to the south, Whitewash trail ridge to the north, and various foothills in between.
Cautions: The lower canyon involves rocky areas that can be slippery. The Old Embudo trail definitely requires good cleats (not YakTrax) when it’s icy and snow covered. Trekking poles are recommended.
