The Tramway Trail is one of the more popular foothill trails. It is located near the Lower Tram Terminal, and many hikers use it as an access trail to the La Luz Trail. Because of its lower elevation, it is a great choice for a winter hike, when many of the other trails in the Sandia Mountains are icy or snow-packed. This trail takes that statement literally, as it balances on the one line between urban trail and wilderness trail. There are several spots near the beginning of the hike where the trail scoots around a small neighborhood, and it may be hard to believe that you are actually in the Sandia Mountain Wilderness Area. As the Tramway Trail begins to gain elevation, it acquires a more wilderness feel, and it may be hard to believe that civilization is so close.
