There are three volcanoes near Albuquerque I25. Very easy walking. You can spend as much time as you want. The views of the city and countryside are amazing. Take water. A few trails were closed in March. You don't have to take the long loop.

It was a very easy hike with nice views of Albuquerque with the mountains behind it. Bring water as I didn't see any vending machines, and definitely no stores.

Bring plenty of water. The trails are well used and easy to follow. The desert is wide open here. The views are spectacular. Native Americans believe that it is disrespectful to climb to the top of the volcano cones, so trails to the apex of...More

Take I 40 west and get off at Atrisco Vista. Go 4.8 mi north to the parking area. A two mile loop or. 1/2 mi overlook offer vista of the Sandias, Rio Grande Valley, Jemez, etc. And it is still in Albuquerque!

Go early and bring water! The family and I hiked the volcanoes over a couple of hours. The views from the top are nice, providing some great photo opportunities

This is one of my favorite places to hike in the area. I have walked here at dawn and at sunset, mornings, midday and evenings. In the summer it's too hot to go in the middle of the day, but at all other times of...More

Its pretty cool to hike around what used to be active cinder cone volcanos. You will feel your inner geologist come out. There is a cave in the forth one and it is a nice respite from the desert sun (even when it's cold).

Volcano Park officially opens at 8:30 am through dusk--we arrived at 6:30 am in order to hike as the sun came up and encountered one individual running. Bring water with you and wear layers. There are some rest stops where you can sit. The volcanos,...More
