      Spanning from Embudito Trailhead on the South to the Sandia Tram Base on the North, the North Foothills are the tamer, more gradual, easier to navigate, and smoother cousin to the South Foothills. In general the North Foothills are more beginner friendly. Multiple trailheads access this area, some areas provide free parking and others require a fee.

      Take note of the parking lot hours as will/may lock you in depending on who is patrolling at the time. Do not leave valuables in plane view inside the vehicle.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
