Trailhead Directions To leave from the Cienega TH: From Albuquerque take I-40 east to Tijeras exit 175. North on SR 14. Left on Sandia Crest Scenic Byway (SR 536). Watch for signs. Cienega Canyon and Sulfur Canyon will be on your left, just after milepost 1. Almost immediately there is a fork to the left (south to Cienega Trailhead). Take that road over the hill to the T intersection and go right. The parking area and trailhead are at the end of the road.

Comments The track was assembled from tracks posted on Mike Coltrin's website.
