The Domingo Baca Trail goes high into the Domingo Baca Canyon near an old TWA plane crash site. This 4.2-mile out-and-back hike begins in the Elena Gallegos Open Space Park. It does not take hikers to the crash site—that requires some o?-trail bushwhacking—but does take hikers into a rugged part of the Sandias. The Sandia Mountains o?er a wealth of recreational opportunities just minutes from the largest urban center in the state. Nearly 150 miles of trails crisscross the mountains, which allow hikers access to some relatively wild and remote locations. The Domingo Baca Trail (#230) is the perfect example of this.
