Cibola National Forest, Albuquerque Reviews - Write a Review

  • The tram ride up and down was fun and provided for some spectacular views. The tram operators gave a short talk about the tram as well as the surrounding area on the ride. Definitely not for anyone afraid of high places as you are hundreds of feet above the valley floor. The trails on the peak are easy to moderate and well groomed. The views both on the trail and on the peaks are amazing. This was a wonderful place to enjoy nature for a late morning hike. The winds are gusty at the top and might be a little chilly in the morning or evening so it would be a good idea to have a light jacket just in case. There are shorter trails of a mile or two as well as much longer trails that could make for a day of hiking so you can choose your own adventure.

  • This place will take your breath away. Truly remarkable. A must see for all ages. Guaranteed to be a good time. Camp sites litter HWY 64 every X amount of miles along the way. You'll love it!

  • Really nice place for off-road activities... I took my mountain bike. Friendly folks on the trails.

  • How can you not love this place? Less than 30 minutes from my home. How cool is that? Haha Best views of the city.

  • New Mexico beauty at its best!! The drive has a lot of historic view. Small quit towns, great for a long drive to get away.
