You can drive up to sandia crest. Than showshoe on the lower trails to the south. Cost $ 3 for parking no change given.
Second that suggestion. We snowshow regularly in the Sandias through March each year. Particularly lovely are the Ellis Trailhead and 10K trail.
We are beginners! Are these good trails for us? Not too much up and down?
You know, the 10K might be nice! If you stay on-trail, it's a bit easier than veering off into deep snow. Enjoy!
Right near this spot has a 1/4 mile trail to give it a tryout.
