La Luz is a great trail to take if you are looking for something to do in Albuquerque but don’t feel like driving far. The trailhead is easily accessible from town, being located just outside of the city limits. When we hiked it, we parked one vehicle at the base of the Tram, and took another vehicle to the trailhead (this will save you around two miles of hiking). The trail takes you from the base of the Sandias, all the way to the crest; from here you get a great view of Albuquerque. Once we got to the crest, we hiked to the Tram where we bought a one way ticket ($12.00) to take us down the mountain. The trail was only eight miles (one way), and even though we took our time, it only took us four hours to make the climb.
