The Easy Trail In New Mexico That Will Take You To The Top Of The World

The Land of Enchantment is home to countless peaks and valleys with incredible views. Unfortunately, to reach many vantage points you have to take a strenuous hike to get there. This trail, however, is as easy as it gets but still has incredible payoffs. At only half a mile long, you won’t be worn out when you reach the top of the world and take in the breathtaking views of the Sandia Mountains. In fact, you may even have energy for some cave exploring.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
