North Crest Trail (130) Professional Reviews and Guides
"This hike starts at the north end of the Crest Trail and follows it to a viewpoint on the north end of the Sandia Crest. Although the trail climbs steadily, the views of the rugged canyons at the north end of the Sandia Mountains are worth the effort."
