The Cienega Trail is one of the shorter hikes to access the Crest Trail. Cienega is Spanish for “wet meadow,” and the trail o?ers plenty of lush meadows for hikers to pass through on their way to the crest of the Sandias. This 4.6-mile out-and-back hike o?ers hikers an opportunity to reach the Crest Trail and enjoy the view west of the Rio Grande Valley.
