|NATIONAL PARKS QUICKLINKS|
This is a great route that will keep you off the busier sections of tramway during winter months when the sun is setting as you start your ride. Bring plenty of lights and be ready for some climbs right out of the chute! Begin by following residential climbs that skirt the foothills, then drop down to tramway along a fast sweeping turn. Head up Simms Park Road to where the gate to Elena will be closed. Turn in to Sandia Heights and snake back down to Tramway. Follow Tramway down to the FR333 turn before turning and climbing gently back to Tramway. Then take side streets that circle through Albuquerque North Acres before joining Tramway for the final push to Spain where one last climb awaits. Then descend gradually back to the HD parking lot!
