Best Hiking/Running/Biking Trail
La Luz Trail
The eight to nine-mile stretch at an altitude ranging between 7000 to more than 10000 feet isn’t for the faint of heart no matter your preferred method of travel — but the journey is well worth it. Those who navigate the strenuous and rocky terrain are treated to varying breathtaking views of cliffs trees and wildflowers. Reach the top — sometimes an all-day trek if hiking — and survey a panoramic view of the city. La Luz is open from sunrise to sunset but come prepared for any — or all — of the seasons Albuquerque offers on a single climb.
