A Celebration of the Sandia Mountains and Open Space

In the Sandia Foothills Open Space, you can enjoy 2,650 acres of high desert landscapes and multi-use trails open to hikers, bikers and horseback riders.  The Sandia Foothills are also the gateway to the Sandia Mountain Wilderness and offer many opportunities to enjoy nature.  During the month of April you can help protect these landscapes by participating in the 16th Annual Spring Clean-up in the Foothills.
