Highlights Pleasant stroll up a canyon. Great aspen color in the fall.

Trailhead Directions From Albuquerque take I-25 north to Bernalillo. From Bernalillo take US 550 to San Ysidro. Take SR 4 north to La Cueva. Go east on SR 126 to Fenton lake. Proceed beyond the "Bridge" for about .5 miles and TURN right onto a forest road. Go about a mile on the road and PARK (0.0 mi).

Actual Hike The hike is on a two track dirt road, FR 378 and ends at FR 144 on the west ridge of San Antonio canyon. There is somewhat of a CANYON VIEW (2.9 mi) at that point, so have lunch there. Return back down along the same road.
