This hike follows the Canoncito Trail up the west slopes of the Sandias to the Sandia Crest and features small waterfalls and seasonal Canoncito Spring. Walk up the road to the trailhead for Barts and Canoncito Trails, then take the Canoncito Trail to the right and follow it north. Go straight ahead where the Canoncito Trail crosses the Faulty Trail. The Canoncito Trail then climbs steadily west through the forest to end at the Sandia Crest and the Crest Trail. Walk south a few yards for a better view.
