Hike of the Week.

10K Trail-North (Trail 200)
How about a hit of fresh air? Enjoy the cool of the autumn on the North 10K trail. It follows along the 10,000 foot contour of the Sandia mountains on an undulating and beautifully forested trail. It ends at a cliff with stunning views of the Jemez mountains and the western horizon.
To Get There:
Take I-40 East to exit 175 and go North on NM-14 towards Cedar Crest. From the exit proceed North on NM-14 for approximately 6 miles and turn left (East) onto NM-536. Look for the Sandia Ski Area sign and the Shell station as prompts for the turnoff onto NM-536. Travel up NM-536 for approximately 10.5 miles until you see a sign for the 10K Trailhead. The parking area will be on the right side of the road.
The Hike:
The trail starts at the north end of the parking lot and proceeds along a well marked path. You’ll proceed almost straight north and pass the turn-off for the Osha Loop trail and the Survey trail as you get closer to the Sandia crest, however you’ll remain tending uphill. You’ll break out into a small clearing with large limestone boulders and the intersection of the Crest trail just before you reach the cliff edge. Enjoy a snack, some water and the views before you reverse course and return to your car.
Pro Tip: Don’t forget to check the weather before you go and even if there’s snow it’s a great snowshoe and cross-country ski trail.
• Location: East Mountains
• Difficulty: Moderate, ~5.0 miles round trip, out and back with approximately 400 feet of elevation gain (net)/1,200 feet (gross).
• Hiking time: 3-4 hours
• Cost: $0 on Veterans Day/$3 amenity fee per vehicle
• Dogs: Allowed on leash

The Grand Canyon trip was awesome! I took way too many photos. This should be on everyone's bucket list.
Unfortunately I had a bad experience with a outdoor rec personnel the equipment rental in particular, so as I finally got an answers on the phone I started speaking to a lady trying to get some answers about a canopy, she was very short and rude and as I was talking she said hold on.. put the phone down talking to someone else and said “ oh geez some people!” When she got back on the phone I proceeded to ask questions price, what I need to reserve? All the while she kept saying yes! Yes! Umhum! I said again price?? No answer I asked her name and she hung up!! I called back a gentleman answered and I told him what just to place, then said “I’m not surprised!” I asked what her name was he said Joann, he took care of what I needed and I was thankful! But to have someone treat Soldiers/Family members like this? Soldiers who served/serving there country?? And to think it happens often ??? “ “Get advice and learn from the experiences of the staff.?” “get a group of friends and work with the staff to create a custom trip that everyone will enjoy and make great memories.”??? 😞 sorry couldn’t find a website or email to address this
Cody, are we on for the sunset ride tomorrow?!
Holiday open house
are you still offering the whitewater rafting in July and August?
I'm searching for two runners to complete my team in Aspen/Snowmass next weekend (Friday and Saturday 8/9 Jun) at the Ragnar trail race. If you don't know about Ragnar, it is an 8 person relay race, overnight, and each runner will complete 14 miles spread over three loops (with a break between each loop). I thought the KAFB outdoor rec community might have interested runners. Long drive from ABQ (8hrs), but it will be epic...let me know!
We had SUCH a great time on the Thirsty Thursday tour! Alec rang in his birthday and Sharon had a blast seeing downtown Albuquerque in warm weather. Thank you, Cody, for organizing such a good time!
