Many trails in the Sandias are 



multiple use. Please practice trail courtesy. 

There are perennial and intermittent springs 

and streams on the mountain, but visitors 

should always carry their own water.

Every year the mountain exacts a toll of 

victims from the unwary, the unprepared, and the 

unfit. The chief hazards to be aware of are storms 

(always dress in layers), dehydration, heat exhaustion

heat stroke, falling trees, and getting lost.
