PDSCW Hike Report

San Gregorio Reservoir Long – San Pedro Parks

Hike Report Sent By: Marilyn Warrant

Hike Distance (mi): 7.1
Elevation Change (ft): 783
Total Uphill (ft): 806
Total Downhill (ft): 806


It was a hot day in Albuquerque, so 13 hikers went to San Pedro Parks to enjoy temperatures in the 70’s, a green forest, and meadows filled with flowers. The reservoir was full, the streams were flowing, and the marshes were muddy. Water! Wildlife: ducks in the reservoir and 3 elk (including one calf) near the turnaround point. Flowers: fields of iris and golden pea, as well as calypso orchid, Colorado and Rocky Mountain Red columbines, white and pink pussytoes, and bitterroot at the highest elevation. As one hiker put it – this hike had everything but a snake!

Thanks to Joe for driving and Patricia for sweeping.
